Dell has begun shipping its new portable thumb sized Android PC code named Project Ophelia to beta testers according to a new report. As you can see from the image above, this Android PC is pretty small in size and can be connected to a television or monitor with an HDMI or MHL port. Users can basically do everything as with a normal PC once this device is plugged in.
The device comes with a microSD card slot, 1GB of RAM, Wi-Fi and a Rockchip RK3066 processor. It works on either MHL or HDMI with the latter requiring an additional USB power cable. Chinese companies have launched such devices for a long time now and Dell hopes it can make a difference with a slightly upgraded version of its own.
The device is rumored to be priced at $100 and was originally going to launch during the first half of 2013. But due to some delays, the launch has now been pushed to Q4 of this year. Since it is based heavily on cloud computing, this can be an attractive prospect to users willing to do some light computing work and even installing apps, games or viewing/streaming content. The unit shown off during the MWC 2013 was running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, so we’re hoping Dell will upgrade it to the latest version in time for the launch.
