    The company is launching today a new ARM micro computer that’s officially called Zero Devices Z2C.

    Zero’s new unit is literally a PC-on-a-stick. The small dimensions of the device makes it looks exactly like an USB flash drive.

    Powered by the obvious suspect, the Zero Devices Z2C thumb PC uses a Rockchip RK3066 ARM processor based on the famous Cortex-A9 architecture.

    The interesting aspect is the fact that this is a dual core CPU that also uses a very fast 1 GB of DDR3 memory.

    Connectivity is well endowed for a system of its size and thus the Zero Devices Z2C thumb PC features two micro USB ports, an HDMI connector and even a micro SD card slot.

    On top of it all, Zero Devices also has a WirelessN adapter integrated and comes with Android 4.0 operating system while all is priced at just $72 (54.8 EUR)
