LinuxWorld, San Francisco -
"The Tablet PC platform has been held back by the lack of an alternative to Windows® XP Tablet Edition," said Joseph Cheek, CEO and Founder of Lycoris. "MoBitS' decision to offer Desktop/LX Tablet Edition pre-installed on its Tablet PCs will lower the cost barriers put up by Microsoft, and help bring the benefits of Tablet computing to thousands of consumers and business users world wide."
"We are very excited about working with Lycoris to bundle Desktop/LX Tablet Edition," said Starry Chen, CEO of MoBitS. "Desktop/LX includes all of the features our customer base is asking for at a substantial savings over Microsoft. When we bundle Windows® XP Tablet Edition, Microsoft ends up making more for each system we manufacture than we do. Lycoris allows us to lower the system cost substantially and bring value to our customers."
Desktop/LX Tablet Edition is the world's first alternative to Microsoft Windows® XP Tablet Edition, and establishes Lycoris as a Linux technology leader in a space previously only inhabited by Microsoft. Lycoris has developed special technology for this platform, including a keyboard-free user interface, gesture-based handwriting recognition, touch screen driver integration, screen rotating support, advanced power management features and USB CD-ROM installation enhancements. Desktop/LX Tablet Edition is tailored specifically for OEMs in the tablet PC space and Lycoris is working hand in hand with MoBitS to ensure an enjoyable customer experience. Desktop/LX Tablet Edition will allow MoBitS to maintain strong profit margins while providing a tangible value to their customers.
