CloudGate Android PC

hat’s a CloudGate?” we hear you ask as you scratch your head, your brow twisted with confusion. Well, the simple answer is that it’s a PC! “But it’s not reeeeaaaally a PC at all, is it?” Of course it is, you silly human. There’s none of them pesky Windowses or Linuxes or OS Xes involved, however. Instead, CloudGate is powered by Google’s Android operating system, leveraging the clout of the mountain of apps available on the Google Play Store to create a powerful, portable, yet affordable alternative to a notebook or desktop PC. That’s CloudGate, you can’t really use it as a gaming PC, but it's useful in so many other ways that this really shouldn't bother you.

“The CloudGate Android PC is tiny, spanning 128mm in height and width, and standing just 20mm tall.”
HOW’S IT WORK?
All you need to get started with CloudGate is a monitor or TV with HDMI input, and a mouse and keyboard to interface with the device. It comes with all the necessary cables and power connectors.

BITE-SIZED COMPUTING
The CloudGate Android PC is tiny, spanning 128mm in height and width, and standing just 20mm tall. This makes it conveniently portable, and it won’t take up much space on your desk or TV stand.

SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
Having access to the Play Store ensures that there’s a vast array of unlockable functionality just a few clicks away. Games, productivity suites, social media apps, web browsers and more can all be discovered by doing a bit of browsing. CloudGate turns any TV into a smart TV.

MEDIA ON THE GO
Plug in an external hard drive and your CloudGate PC turns into a portable media centre. Watch movies, listen to music and browse photos from the comfort of your couch.

WINDOWS, IN THE CLOUD
In case you absolutely must have access to Windows-exclusive functionality, CloudGate offers their proprietary CloudWare service, which is sort of like a virtual machine/not-quite-dumb terminal that lets you run Windows applications on a remote server. Sadly, this is perhaps the one area of the CloudGate that falters, because if the connection is slow, using CloudWare is painful.

WHERE WOULD I USE IT?
Well, wherever you'd like really. It's great for home or business use depending on your needs, and is very cost effective if you’re on a tight budget. It’d be quite useful in schools as well.
