MPB - “Lifestyle PC’s”

Bill Mitchell introduced the concept of “Lifestyle PC’s”. The concept (and it is just that right now folks!) is basically a low price point, small “UltraMobile” PC that is meant to be the device that goes everywhere with you, and that you will not want to leave home without. Here are a couple of the goal highlights:

  • Price point - Ideally < $500 (yes...!)
  • Very portable (think smaller)
  • Wearable / Carryable (small, etc.)
  • LONG battery life
  • “Always on” , always online
  • Run full Windows XP Tablet PC Edition
  • Extremely durable
  • Full ink support
  • Pen and Touch input
  • A “10 inch” UI
  • Announcement coming in a month or so ...

This is an exciting space...., so stay tuned
