TIM Says, "You've Got Java"


Imagine having instant access to Starbuck�s menu before approaching the counter and deciding which coffee concoction you�re in the mood for. While waiting for your double-shot decaf mocha with extra whip, you tap into the latest music streams and have a go at a game of electronic darts. Perhaps you�re planning your next shopping excursion and want to know what�s on sale. With the push of a button, you�ll have instant access to the latest deals, coupons, and specials. It�s a wireless-lover�s customizable dream come true and this technology is readily available through TanCher�s latest platform, TIM, a new low-power OS complete with pre-equipped applications.
