The Dell Wyse Cloud Connect is basically a PC-on-a-stick that runs Google Android and Dell’s custom software. There are dozens of similar devices from Chinese companies… but what makes Dell’s version different is the company’s emphasis on enterprise features that let you use the pocket-sized PC as a thin client, digital signage device, and more.
Now Dell is rolling out a few new features including an Android app that lets you use your phone or tablet as a wireless keyboard and mouse.
The new Cloud Connect Controller app is available for free from the Google Play Store. Install the app, pair your phone with your Cloud Connect over Bluetooth, and you can use your Android device to control apps on the Cloud Connect while it’s plugged into a TV or monitor.
Other new features include the ability to load digital signage using an SD card, and Wyse vWorkspace client for logging into a remote computer using Dell’s Wyse software.
The Wyse Cloud Conect is available from Dell.com for $129.
