Video: SmartCandy is an uber-mini Android PC-on-a-stick

Posted by Trent Nouveau

We've covered the burgeoning PC-on-a-stick market fairly extensively on TG Daily in recent months. While offering various features and a wide range of capabilities, the overall form factor amongst such devices is pretty much the same.

To be sure, most of the devices are approximately the same size as a somewhat bulky USB flash drive.

However, Smart Candy's latest Android TV stick boasts a significantly reduced form factor, measuring a slim 2.67″ x 1.14″ x 0.47″ and weighing a mere ounce.

The specs are certainly respectable, and include a 1.6 GHz Rockchip ARM Cortex-A9 dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) and a microSD card slot.

Unfortunately, the SmartCandy lacks WiFi support and USB port, so the company is offering an external adapter with WiFi and USB, as well as an optional dock fitted with Ethernet and three USB port.

It should probably be noted that there is also apparently a SmartCandy model available with a Telechips processor, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage.
