Lycoris Unveils OS for Tablet PC Platform
Redmond, WA - July 15, 2003 - Lycoris unveiled its new OS for the tablet PC, Desktop/LX Tablet Edition, into the hands of tablet manufacturers and resellers this week. Seen as a giant step into a new market for the Linux software company responsible for the award winning Desktop/LX OS, Tablet Edition gives OEMs and vertical markets access to an inexpensive operating system capable of running on the Tablet PC platform. “For example, a retailer can now opt for the less expensive Desktop/LX Tablet Edition on their tablets and save over $100 per unit on the floor,” remarks Jason Spisak, Vice President of Market Development of Lycoris, “and that directly affects the bottom line.”
This incredible new foray into the small world of tablet computers establishes Lycoris as a Linux technology leader in a space previously only inhabited by Microsoft. Lycoris has developed special technology for this platform such as a keyboard-free user interface, touch screen driver integration 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 them to ensure an enjoyable customer experience. Desktop/LX Tablet Edition retails for $50.00 and installs in less than 20 minutes on average PC hardware, allowing OEMs to maintain strong profit margins while providing a tangible value.
One of the primary features of the Tablet PC is keyboardless operation. Desktop/LX Tablet Edition contains technology that allows the OS to be installed and operated without a keyboard. The onscreen virtual keyboard allows users to enter text such as passwords as if a standard 101 key input was attached.
Monitoring power reserves is essential to the disconnected operation of a Tablet PC. Lycoris has created a special battery system tray icon which gives users one-look access to remaining battery life. A simply click gives more specific percentage readout of the power left on the tablet.
Tablet PCs with Desktop/LX pre-installed are already in production. OEMs are invited to have their tablet Desktop/LX Certified today in order to start taking advantage of Lycoris' low-cost, proven technology and offer an alternative to their cutstomers.
