1. NEWS AND VIEWS
(contributed by Paul Thurrott, [email protected])
Microsoft announced yesterday that the company will market its Mira display technology as Windows CE for Smart Displays, a curiously technical name for a general-consumer-oriented product. The first generation of Windows CE for Smart Displays devices will be available later this year from companies such as Fujitsu, Philips, and ViewSonic. The Smart Displays devices will use wireless technology to let Windows XP Professional users remotely access their desktop PCs from anywhere in the home.
"Since introducing Windows CE for Smart Displays at CES in January, we have seen great momentum and support for this new technology, with more than 15 industry-leading partners signed up to deliver a variety of wireless monitor form factors," said Todd Warren, general manager of Microsoft's Embedded and Appliance Platforms Group. "These Windows-powered Smart Displays will extend the consumer's Windows XP experience out of the home office or den into more relaxed settings, providing access to their personal data, applications, and services from any room in the home."
Devices based on Windows CE for Smart Displays will ship in several sizes, including versions with 6", 10", and 15" displays that range in price from about $500 to $1000. The devices will include Windows CE .NET and 802.11b-based wireless standard capabilities.
