FXI Technologies Inc. launches a community website and technical forum, announcing pre-order availability of the 21-gram Cotton Candy devices.

According to the announcement by FXI Technologies, the Cotton Candy device is the world’s first “any-screen” cloud computer, weighing only 21 grams. Cotton Candy is a complete computer platform that allows users a single, secure point of access to all personal cloud services and apps through their favorite operating system while delivering a consistent experience on any screen through its USB and HDMI connections. The device can serve as a portable, secure thin client on PCs, Macs, and notebooks, as well as a set top box, gaming system, or cloud computer.

Specifications include an ARM Cortex-A9 (1GHz) CPU from Samsung, an ARM Mali-400 MP (Quad-core, 1.2GHz) GPU, WiFi and Bluetooth, HDMI output, and the Android operating system. The device decodes MPEG-4, H.264, and other video formats and displays HD graphics on any HDMI-equipped screen.

Supported operating systems include Android Gingerbread, Ice Cream Sandwich, and Ubuntu. On-screen content can be controlled in a variety of ways: wirelessly using smartphones with an app, with Bluetooth peripherals, or by leveraging a notebook’s integrated keyboard and touchpad.
