Shenzhen based B2GO manufactures the X96 Android and Windows 10 thin clients. The company has now announced a new TV stick that is almost as tall as your index finger. The new chewing-gum sized device can turn your existing TV or computer monitor into a PC. It is named the X96s.
The B2GO X96s measures 98mm x 33mm x 13mm and weighs just 31 grams. The super small form factor makes the device extremely portable. Forget a bag, all you need is half a pocket to carry this computer with you. The small size also makes it the ideal device to be used with wall-mounted TVs or a multi-display setup—Scenarios where you’re already low on space to spare.
