Cheap USB Stick Sized Mini Computers Running on Android 4.0

Chinese stores have begun selling a device on a USB stick format with Android 4.0. The system is similar to the Raspberry Pi and Cotton Candy devices and all you need to do is connect it to an external monitor.

According Cnxsoft the model is already available in various shops and is sold for about $74. This means that the device is relatively inexpensive, though the previously released Raspberry Pi with a price of $35 is much cheaper.

Furthermore, there is 4 GB memory storage built in, while it as a 512 RAM. There is support for WiFi connection and the device can play video at 1080p resolution. It will be very interesting as to how these Android USB sticks will perform compared to various low end and middle end Android smartphones that are flooding the market now.
