FXI Cotton Candy availability status interview

Posted by Charbax – May 14, 2012

boredatwork.com published this interview with FXI Tech about the status of shipments for their awesome Exynos4 powered HDMI stick product.

Something to do with FXI adding USB host to the design causing some of the delay. Hopefully they start shipping in Scandinavia this month, and to all other pre-orders during the summer. I'd like to see this form factor mass manufactured and sold for around $69 retail and not $199. See the TI OMAP4 powered Always Innovating HDMI stick alternative where it's said the BOM cost for such a platform may be as low as $30.

  • ZERO Devices Z802 available here: http://www.asiapads.com/product_info.php?products_id=2246

    It seems ZERO Devices finished stock after a big “wave of orders” , but they are making more soon. (Info from official website)

    Hopefully have FXI tech and Zero Devices started a new concept of pico ARM-based computers for Online gaming and web surfing.

    But with 3D IC forthcoming years this pico computers concept will be much more common.

    I love Goophone
    As a Goophone fans,I used the Goophone for five years. Goophone V5 is good ,but it doesn’t have 3G function.Now,goophone mtk6575 was show on the mark.It’s good quality and faster speed .That’s great!Goophone fans will like it very much. let’s buy goophone y5for support it.

  • Maventwo

    But Goophone is very similar in copying design of Iphone.

    Is not too similar for what Apple lawyers will accept?

  • CyberGusa

    Charbax, the next time you get a chance to question any of those making these USB dongle devices. 

    You should ask them if they can automatically boot when plugged into the USB port of a computer and run a VM on top of the computer OS like the FXI Cotton Candy can do.

    Here’s a fairly detailed youtube video from Laptop mag on the FXI Cotton Candy that shows that they’re advancing it to a even smaller design and also demos two of them plugged into a laptop and that it support mirror mode for supporting the same display on two monitors that may support more functionality later.

    Goophone Y5 1GHz MTK6575 Best Iphone Copy
        If people Attention Chinese knock off Iphone 4S i think many people know the gooapple y5 3G and goophone.this is two different factory but both of them made copy iphone.And Goophone Y5 inherit the 4S 906*640 pixel retina screen display resolution, exchange with more powerful 1GHz cortex A9 new generation goophone mtk6575 processor, it run smoother than old model, no lag for all task. What you expect, what Goophone Y5 has.
