Company Press Release:
Intel Corporation has joined forces with CompuMe to introduce the 'electronic home' concept to the region for the first time. Visitors to GITEX 2000 can enjoy the e-home experience at the CompuMe stand in Hall 2.
An Internet-connected network of a Pentium IV PC and two other Intel-based machines act as the central platform for a host of electronic devices and accessories, allowing visitors to surf the web, exchange e-mail, chat, research, share digital photos, download music and shop online.
"As the Internet changes the way people live, work, learn and play, it is having an impact on essentially every consumer activity, from communication to shopping," said Andreas Dott, Intel's consumer programs manager EMEA.
"This trend is fueling Intel's vision of the e-home, in which the Internet progressively fulfills more of peoples' core needs, of communication, commerce and content, and enriches their day-to-day lives," he added.
Intel intends to continue to reinvent the PC by advocating creative new designs and form factors that enhance its physical appeal. It will reduce the amount of legacy technology making PCs more consumer-friendly and extending the reach of the PC through peripherals.
