Tango Tech launches world's most powerful smartphone-sized PC

Tango mini-PC

The tech startup company have just launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund their portable mini-PC.

On Wednesday Tango Tech launched the fundraiser that has already raised $26,000 in just two days.

The mini-PC weighs just 200g and is no larger than the modern day smartphone. It's a multipurpose computer capable of running mainstream CAD applications and games that do not require too much GPU performance.

Tango can run Windows 7 or 8.1, Linux/Ubuntu, and Chromium OS. It also boasts a 2GHz quad-core i3 processor with integrated GPU. The device can be preconfigured with up to 8GB RAM and a Terabyte SSD; users can also easily install after-market RAM or hard-drives with the removal of two screws.

You might be wondering how Tango can fit a desktop sized computer into smartphone-sized box; well the answer is that they outsource the battery, fan and ports to a small docking station.

The docking station provides three USB 2.0 ports, one USB 3.0 port, Ethernet, WiFi, HDMI and a headphone/mic jack. It also runs off a 12V supply so it can be powered through the included mains adapter or off the power outlet of your average car.

Users can install the docking stations that cost $89 (£53) each at home, the office and next to their TV which gives instant Tango connectivity to all the peripherals at a given place.

Tango claim the technology behind the transferring of the heat from the 30-watt mini-PC to the docking station is literally from out of space, and their patent application for such tech is currently pending.

The company also says that they have agreements in place with some of world's biggest retailers such as Amazon and BestBuy who will be distributing the product.

Those interested can pledge $349 (£208) on the company's Kickstarter page and will receive the base model PC along with one docking station. The base model is configured with 4GB RAM and a 32GD SSD.
