The specs haven't changed much since we last previewed FXI's pocketable Cotton Candy PC at CES in January, but the tiny plastic shell has gotten a mild refresh ahead of a preorder program announced this week. As a refresher, the Cotton Candy is a full-fledged computer running your choice of Android or Ubuntu in a package no bigger than a pack of gum — bolstered by a dual-core processor, Wi-Fi, and HDMI-out — and the new design adds a Micro USB port and dispenses of the original prototype's wild design for a more staid, white, rectangular look (though you've still got colored endcaps covering the HDMI and USB ports). It's available for pre-order now, and as promised, it's coming in under $200: $199, to be exact. Expect delivery in March.
