Instant-On computing environment platforms seem to be everywhere at CES. We ran across DeviceVM at ShowStoppers just a day or two after talking with the Hyperspace folks at Digital Experience.
While Phoenix recently released Hyperspace, DeviceVM’s Splashtop software has been shipping since mid 2007 and is embedded on millions of notebooks, desktops, web-centric netbooks and nettops and other devices on manufacturers including ASUS, Acer, Intel, Lenovo and HP.
Splashtop is known as an Instant-On platform and loads and is ready to use in about 6 seconds. The Splashtop application environment is built on Linux. In addition to the Web browser, it includes Skypeâ„¢, IM, media playback tools, and PIM applications. The environment can be extended with native or web-based applications.
For CES, DeviceVM and Lenovo expanded the range of quick start netbooks to include the IdeaPad S10 netbook.
