We announced the next-generation MeeGo-compliant version of Splashtop at the Intel Developers Forum last week. In case you were not at the event, here is an excerpt of the keynote by Intel SVP Renée James talking about Splashtop and DeviceVM:
Quoting an official recent press release from Dell:
As today’s workforce becomes increasingly dispersed and mobile and organizations work to balance data protection with mobile access for its end users, Dell today launched new additions to its portfolio of Latitude E-Family laptops, giving users an enhanced security and mobile experience.
Splashtop has been named a winner of the 2010 Mobility Awards - Technology Innovation and we could not be more excited. Especially, when some our awesome partners like Acer, HP, and Lenovo which ship Splashtop on their netbooks and notebooks, are also recipients of awards too. Thanks Mobiletrax for the honor.
Any start-up company has to focus its limited resources to create a product that really really speaks to its target users. One place, however, were you should not cut corners is internationalization. Since its inception, Splashtop has been serving users as far from our California headquarters as Poland, Brazil, or Malaysia. In fact, if we look at where our new users came from in February, we see that the US accounts for under a half of our growth:
HP has introduced the new Mini 210 Vivienne Tam special edition netbook. We are happy to be contributing to the QuickWeb software of such a beautiful product. Here is how QuickWeb looks on the Mini 210 Vivienne Tam edition:
Notice the Mirror app in the application dock - a must for a true fashion product.
2009 was a busy year for netbooks. According to Display Search worldwide shipments are expected to hit 33 million units, that is a 103% jump from 2008. Even the very definition of a netbook is jumping around with each manufacturer molding the netbook in its own way.
HP has just announced their new lineup of netbooks and notebooks. We at DeviceVM are excited to point out that a number of new systems feature HP QuickWeb functionality, powered by Splashtop. As HP explains:
"QuickWeb allows users to access the web in seconds when the notebook is shut down. The application resides outside the notebook’s operating system, so there is no need to wait for the computer to boot up."
The singular goal of DeviceVM and the Splashtop technology is to get you to whatever you're looking for, quickly and efficiently. We're the inventors of this space and continually think of ways to innovate. Sometimes we innovate by solving large technical problems like getting your machine up and functional in a matter of seconds. Other times, we observe how people are using technology and attempt to make interface changes that improve the experience of using Splashtop.
