As if we hadn't just about enough computing systems including the PC moniker (just think about it: HTPC, notebook/netbook PC, media center PC, AIO PC, and even nettop PC, although that last one is a bit far-fetched), Intel has decided to introduced a brand new family of computing solutions at this year's IDF, the so-called TC (or Tiny Computer), the first-ever product of this type being the OCS1, developed by the chip manufacturer together with Ocosmos and AT&T.
First, it is equipped with OMOS Interface, an integrated controller developed by Ocosmos, where a few buttons can serve functions of a keyboard and a mouse, on top of the touch screen interface and QWERTY keyboard.
Second, OCS1 is enabled by Intel's Oaktrail chip, which has a PC level capacity
, and (third), it operates on Windows 7 instead of a mobile OS such as Android, which means that users can enjoy computer games such as Starcraft, WoW and other 3-D games on the mobile device.
Moreover, OCS1 is 4.8 inches in size, Wi-Fi enabled, and equipped with a detachable HSDPA for wireless communication.
Also, a mobile mouse spider function developed by Ocosmos and a camera allow quality web search and game services. Intel
and Ocosmos already agreed in April that the "Intel Inside" logo would be displayed on OCS1 for product credibility. They also agreed to forge a strategic relationship with AT&T so that users can play online games such as Starcraft and WoW on the mobile device via AT&T's Wi-Fi networks.
Eu-jin Oh, President of Ocosmos, said, "OCS1 is the world's first TC that provides the same experience of playing online games on TC" and "young generation will fall in love with the TC capable beyond any smart phone”
