Project Ophelia to ship for about $100

Computer maker Dell is taking yet another step into the Android device segment, as it prepares to ship Project Ophelia. Ophelia is a thumb-sized USB device that contains hardware that runs Google's mobile operating system, and it plugs into a television to turn any HDTV into a smart device. It should begin shipping in July of this year for a price of $100.

Dell first showed off the device in January at CES, but the company will again demonstrate it at the Citrix Synergy conference in Los Angeles, according to PCWorld. Users of the device will be able to run Android games and apps, as well as stream video content from providers such as Hulu and Netflix.

The device will also come with Wyse's PocketCloud, allowing users to access stored content on PCs, servers, and mobile devices.

The first Ophelia units will ship to developers, and August will see cable companies and telecom providers offering the device with cable and data plans. Thereafter, Dell will begin offering it on its website. The company will also be offering the device -- along with IT administrator tools -- to enterprises as a thin client computer.
