Over the years we’ve become accustomed to the trend of Android powered USB sticks that act as a plug-n-play device, which can be mounted on a TV, which converts a normal TV into Android running desktop. These USB sticks are generally larger is size than the original USB drives but today we have come across one of the smallest in the market.
It is a little hard to differentiate between a USB drive and mini-PC but with SmartCandy all that can be forgotten.
SmartCandy is the latest Android TV stick that looks like a USB drive in terms of size and weight but is a mini-PC in terms of functionality.
SmartCandy was spotted at a recent trade show. In terms of the hardware, the stick packs a 1.6 GHz ARM processor coupled with 1 GB RAM. It runs Android 4.1 aka Jelly Bean version. The stick also has a microSD slot.
However, unlike other USB sticks, SmartCandy does not offer in-built Wi-Fi or USB port but the company is giving an external adapter for Wi-Fi and USB. The stick also comes with an option of dock with Ethernet and 3 USB ports. Pricing details have not been mentioned but we assume this will be priced under $100 like all the other sticks.
Other than the above mentioned device, the company also has a model that packs a Telechips processor with 512 MB RAM, and 4 GB storage. This is how the smallest mini-pc looks like.
