Intel shows of the Ultra Mobile PC (UMPC) category that offers consumers small, ultra-mobile devices with full PC capabilities, uncompromised Internet access, anytime connectivity, and the ability to recognize and adapt to its environment virtually anytime and anywhere.
More than ever before, today’s media-hungry consumers are looking for convenient ways to access the Internet and enjoy their favorite digital content while on the go. People, no matter where they are around the world, want to take the full power of the Internet and their PCs with them. They want to be connected with the important people in their lives anytime, everywhere they go. They want technology to make their lives easier.
Intel is addressing these needs by delivering low power technologies that enable a new category of small, thin, and light devices, the Ultra Mobile PC (UMPC) platform. Simply put, the UMPC is the perfect PC companion. Mainly designed for content consumption, the UMPC allows users to:
ACCESS content and information virtually anytime, anywhere
COMMUNICATE via email, IM, chat, or blogging
ENTERTAIN themselves with videos, games, music, pictures or TV on the go
BE PRODUCTIVE by monitoring office apps and tools
The first products based on this concept will be presented on March 9, 2006. It's believed that Microsoft's Origami Project is one of these Ultra Mobile PCs.
