$200 USB Stick Size Ubuntu PC 'Cotton Candy' Starts Shipping in May

FXI's Cotton Candy, A $200 USB stick size PC running Ubuntu and Android 4.0 will start shipping at the end of this month to anyone who has pre-ordered the device in back in February.

These devices were supposed to ship in March but a number of new changes had delayed the manufacturing process. New features include a more durable casing, a micro USB port and improved Android 4.0 support.

Unfortunately, FXI will not be taking new pre-orders until further announced as they have already received a large no of pre-orders than expected.

Cotton Candy features a dual-core 1.2GHz ARM processor, a quad-core ARM Mali-400MP GPU, a USB port for receiving power, a micro USB port, a micro SD card slot and a 1080p-ready HDMI port. The device has both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth radios for connecting to the Internet and pairing with devices like mice and keyboards.
