Dell Moves Forward With Project Ophelia Cloud Device

By Jeffrey Burt  |  Posted 2013-10-22

Dell seems to be gearing up for the eventual launch of its Project Ophelia, an Android-based device that is a little larger than a USB memory stick and is designed to make it easy for users—both in the consumer and corporate worlds—to carry their PC content and applications with them and access them when needed. First introduced during CES 2013 in January, more information on the device—now called the Dell Wyse Cloud Connect—is appearing in documents the vendor filed with the Federal Communications Commission. At the same time, Dell is promising hands-on demonstrations of the technology during its Dell World event in Austin, Texas, in December. The device is designed to plug into any display and turn it into a cloud-based computer, giving users access to their PC content and applications. There are still some unanswered questions around such areas as processors, storage and memory, but Dell is saying that Ophelia can be connected to the display via High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) or Mobile High Definition Link (MHL) ports, and that keyboards and mice can be used via Bluetooth connectivity. The goal is to give an increasingly mobile world an easier way to connect to their PC environments when they're on the go. Here are some of the photos of the Wyse Cloud Connect device that Dell officials filed with the FCC.
