Radio Shack to sell AMD's $299 PIC

Posted on Sunday, October 02 2005 @ 12:20:02 CEST by

AMD's ultra-cheap $299 Personal Internet Communicator will soon start selling at Radio Shack.

This machine was announced earlier this year and was designed for developing countries to access the Internet and perform basic computing tasks. But companies like Radio Shack believe there's quite some demand for this device in the United States too.
Sunnyvale-based AMD originally conceived the device last year for low-income consumers in developing countries as part of an effort it calls ``50x15.'' AMD Chief Executive Hector Ruiz wants more than half of the world's population using computers by 2015.
The PIC is a bare bone machine which features a stripped down version of Windows CE and a 366MHz AMD Geode GX processor. It can be used to read and create word processing, spreadsheet and presentation files as well as access the Internet or send e-mail.
