VIA Technologies demonstrated its new VIA Tablet PC design at the WinHEC 2002 event in Taipei, Taiwan. The slate-style, ultra portable PC combines a 'digital ink' system with a 10.4" electro-magnetic
digitiser portrait screen to form a digital notepad.

"We are proud to be launching the VIA Tablet PC design at WinHEC," commented Richard Brown, director of International Marketing at VIA Technologies, Inc. "The Tablet PC represents a very exciting new market segment with exceptional long term growth potential."

Less than one inch thick and weighing over one kilogram, VIA’s Tablet PC design supports the full functionality of Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition as well as a full range of current connectivity features such as USB 2.0, IEEE 1394 and optional 802.11b wireless support.

The Tablet PC incorporates most of VIA’s technologies including its C3 EBGA and Eden ESP processors as well as the VIA Apollo Pro266T DDR SDRAM chipset, thereby, reducing the cost of the system and enhancing
its compatibility and reliability.
