Dell is said to be working on a new device under the code-name “Project Ophelia,” and reports suggest it will essentially be an Android-powered computer on a USB stick.  The struggling PC vendor will apparently use Ophelia to help reinvent itself as company founder Michael Dell continues his efforts to take Dell private, and now the computer on a stick is one step closer to launching. According to a recent report from IDG News Service, Dell’s Project Ophelia “can turn any screen or display with an HDMI port into a PC, gaming machine, or streaming media player,” and it is now shipping to beta testers ahead of a public release scheduled for this fall. The device will be priced around $100, IDG claims.
