DeviceVM recently released their award winning Splashtop software on a large number of ASUS notebooks. Splashtop, a light-weight operating system, enables consumers to use their computers seconds after hitting the power button.
According to Mark Lee, co-founder and CEO of DeviceVM, the integration of Splashtop into notebooks represents a big step forward in portable computing, where instant 'on' and 'off' is essential.
“We are pleased to introduce Splashtop to portable computing together with our partner ASUS,” said Lee in a statement.
By using branded "Express Gate" by ASUS, Splashtop software one can browse the web, watch videos, listen to music, chat with friends, share photos, and more. All this can be done just seconds after turning on a PC. DeviceVM informs that the Express Gate is already available on a variety of PC motherboards from ASUS. These new notebooks are reportedly the first to integrate Express Gate for the broad consumer market, including the M70T, M50V and M51Vr multimedia series and the stylish F8Va/Vr series.
Henry Yeh, general manager, ASUS Notebook Business Unit pointed out that ASUS is always committed to bring customers the most innovative solutions. Yeh is confident that with Express Gate, users will experience a new, fast, and secure way to surf, chat and play on ASUS notebooks for a new computing experience.
DeviceVM has planned that models spanning a broad range of segments will be shipped with Splashtop pre-installed by ASUS from June 2008.
Founded in 2006, DeviceVM is a privately held software company offering Splashtop, an award-winning 'instant-on' platform that improves the personal computing experience. In cooperation with OEMs and system vendors DeviceVM integrates Splashtop into personal computers worldwide. DeviceVM is headquartered in Silicon Valley with offices in Taiwan and China.
