Dell’s Project Ophelia delivers Android to any device
Dell has been developing the Project Ophelia quite a long time. More details about that were revealed at this year’s CES. Ophelia is a dongle which can deliver Android 4.0 or above on any device having an HDMI and a display. Now we have found out more details about the device – it is going to be launched this summer for a price below $100, according to the latest news. Additionally, Dell is going to make a demonstration of Ophelia next week in Los Angelis. During an international conference, the company will show how using the dongle users can bring Android to a 55-inch display. Soon afterwards the device will be delivered to some developers in order to write some applications about the dongle.
The Project Ophelia promises to deliver an Android experience practically on any device with a screen and a compatible HDMI port – any screen, TV, projector or computer display. Ophelia can offer WiFi and Bluetooth connection and users can access their displays using a mobile device with a cloud-based solution – Wyse PocketCloud. It is clear that Ophelia aims at becoming the cheap alternative for tablets and computers. Delivering Android to any comparable device, it can be transformed and used as a computer suitable for games or browsing. Additionally, users can download apps from Google Play and enhance their experience.
According to Dell, many other features will be included. They will be integrated for an enhanced management and a better user experience. Furthermore, the cloud client can give possibilities to track the dongle, erase or add data from a distance. Dell promised to deliver Ophelia to the wider audience in August – you may find it at your cable or telecom provider. Later on, the dongle could be purchased via Dell’s online store.
