OpenSource For You - - FOSS BYTES -

SmartCandy is the lat­est An­droid TV stick that looks like a USB drive in terms of size and weight but is a mini- 3C 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 ( Jelly Bean). The stick also has a mi­croSD slot.

How­ever, un­like other USB sticks, SmartCandy does not of­fer in-built Wi-Fi or a USB port but the com­pany pro­vides an ex­ter­nal adapter for Wi-Fi and USB. The stick also comes with an op­tion for a dock with Eth­er­net and three USB ports. 3ric­ing de­tails have not been men­tioned but it is as­sumed it would 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 of stor­age.
