Google's Chromecast is cheap and awesome, but it only performs a very specific set of functions, and even venturing out as far as tab casting gives murky results. Dell's Wyse Cloud Connect, formerly known as Project Ophelia, is a little dongle that can toss up a full Android desktop on any HDMI or MHL-enabled display, and it's now available for purchase. It comes with complete access to the Play Store, so you can use it to keep up with episodes of The Daily Show, listen to Lady Gaga, defend towers, or, you know, be productive.

Dell Wyse Cloud Connect comes with PocketCloud pre-installed, which gives users remote access to physical or virtual desktops. The device is pitched towards enterprise customers, but there's no reason you can't have good clean fun with it. The screenshots above show off the hardware, but you can get a feel for what the Android experience may be like in the video walkthrough that Dell has provided.

The Dell Wyse Cloud Connect costs $129. That's 3 - 4 Chromecasts, but at the same time, no amount of Google's dongles will give you this type of functionality. You could still find much cheaper options on Amazon, but if you want something with a reputable brand attached, Dell might just be calling your name.
