You will receive a developer version of Cotton Candy.  Please be aware that the early beta releases of the operating system / firmware for the device are only intended for developer use and have noticeable limitations in several areas, which will be addressed in upcoming software releases.

The first release of Android Ice Cream Sandwich for Cotton Candy features basic Android functionality without custom apps, in addition to an early implementation of FXI’s proprietary Any Screen technology. It has a large number of features, which are ready for developer use, but there are also a number of limitations that include:

  • Video playback and streaming works for certain formats, websites and apps, but there are many that are not yet supported.
  • Power management is not implemented therefore some USB hosts may not be able to power the device for all use cases.
  • Overall stability – Although the OS support is suited for application development and prototyping it is not at the level of an off-the-shelf consumer device. Some instability and bugs are likely to be experienced.
  • No Google Play access – Applications must be downloaded through other means such as websites, third party application stores or installed through ADB / microSD.

FXI is committed to providing an excellent platform for commercial products as well as hobbyist development and will be releasing freely downloadable software updates in order to improve the Cotton Candy experience. We also intend to open source large parts of the software code base for Cotton Candy in order to further enable the developer ecosystem and welcome any feedback and suggestions for improvement through our developer forums and issue tracking systems.
