Default EMTEC to Reveal Gdium Mobile Netbook at CES

EMTEC has officially launched the Gdium, an ultra-portable, affordable "netbook" computer with a stunning design and innovative architecture entrenched in the open-source world.

The EMTEC Gdium integrates an energy efficient processor and operating system. The processor, based on MIPS-64 architecture, is provided by ST Microelectronics, a tier-one top-quality chip maker. Designed to combine performance and low energy consumption, the Gdium runs on a dedicated and optimized version of Mandriva Linux OS, specially designed for the 64-bit processor.

Unique to the Gdium is the G-Key, a bootable USB key on which the Linux operating system, applications and personal data are stored. The G-Key allows each user to store their personal information and preferences securely, without leaving a trace on the computer.

"The Gdium netbook offering is unique to the marketplace," said Chris Mack, EVP Sales & Marketing, EMTEC, North America. "The revolutionary new design and the unique synchronization feature of the G-Key separate Gdium from the rest of the pack. With a sub-400 retail price point, we believe EMTEC will become a key player in the netbook market."

An interesting take on the Netbook market from EMTEC. Netbooks have certainly taken off much more wildly than anyone expected. If they can hit all of the features explained here at the price point they expect it could well be a very sucessful product. Available in Black, White, and even in Pink for the ladies.
