MC2 Post 2010 The Fast approaching world of Dongle Computers







That fit in the Palm of your hand.





After first showing up at CES 2013, Dell is finally shipping the Dell Wyse Cloud Connect HDMI dongle that turns any display into a PC.

Priced at $129, the Android-based Wyse dongle is slightly larger than a typical USB stick and gives you full access to Google Play’s app catalog. When you need to get some serious work done, Wyse integrates with desktop virtualization services from Citrix, Microsoft, and VMWare, as well as Dell’s own apps and files remote access solution, PocketCloud.

As you might have guessed from the description, the Wyse dongle is aimed at enterprises and other large organizations including educational institutions. But it’s easy to imagine how this device could appeal to anyone else who wants the power of a PC in their pocket without the hassle of lugging a laptop everywhere.

When you first slap the Wyse Cloud Connect dongle into a display via HDMI or MHL port you are greeted with an Android Jelly Bean home screen. You can then access Android apps installed on the device or fire up your remote desktop.

The biggest downside for business travelers is Wyse Cloud Connect requires you to bring your own keyboard and mouse.

Wyse can connect to peripherals via Bluetooth or you can alternate using a wired keyboard and mouse with the dongle’s single USB port. There’s also a micro SD card slot supporting up to 72GB expandable storage, 8GB onboard storage, and 1GB RAM.

For networking you’ve got Bluetooth and 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, and the device is powered by a Cortex-A9 SoC. The Wyse Cloud Connect dongle takes its name from Wyse Technology, a thin-client service provider Dell acquired in 2012.

Intel's Compute Stick is a dirt-cheap Windows PC 
that fits in the palm of your hand





In November, Intel announced its Compute Stick—an entire PC inside the form factor of a Google Chromecast. Now it's ready to ship, and at just $149 for the Windows version.

Intel quietly announced at the Consumer Electronics Show here that the Compute Stick would ship in March. Two versions will be available: the Windows (with Bing) version, for $149, as well as a lower-powered Linux version for $89.

The stick will plug into the back of a smart TV or monitor “and bring intelligence to that,” said Kirk Skaugen, senior vice president and general manager of the PC Client Group at Intel, during the Intel investor conference in Santa Clara, California, which was webcast. The concept isn't new, of course. Amazon, Google, and others have dedicated streaming boxes squezed into the HDMI stick form factor, and Dell’s $129.99 Wyse Cloud Connect can turn a screen or display into a PC, gaming machine or streaming media player.
