Datawind launches UbiSurferwn with Windows capabilities

 

                 

Datawind, a leading provider of wireless web access products and services, has announced the launch of a Windows enabled version of its popular UbiSurfer netbook. The UbiSurferwn, offers users free Internet access in the UK and low cost roaming in Europe and USA will now also include the Windows CE 6.0 operating system and Softmaker Office Suite.

 

With Microsoft Windows CE, the new UbiSurfer boots-up in ten seconds, and applications launch instantly, providing consumers an excellent system with the familiarity of a PC. Windows CE is a pre-emptive real-time operating system that delivers a compelling user experience.

 

The UbiSurferwn also comes pre-loaded with the SoftMaker Office Suite, which offers the full feature set of a modern desktop-league office suite. SoftMaker Office lets customers open, edit, and save any Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint file, directly and without conversion, retaining all the formatting, functions, and contents of the original Office files.

 

By incorporating Wi-Fi, LAN and embedded wireless data modem with SIM, the UbiSurfer allows access to the internet anywhere a mobile phone signal is available, at home and abroad. Users are not limited to Wi-Fi hotspots and there is no need to buy a costly USB broadband dongle to ensure connection.

 

Suneet S. Tuli, CEO of Datawind commented, “Our main goal as a company is to offer free internet to everyone, everywhere, which is why the UbiSurfer provides 30 hours free internet usage per month for the first year, it is important to us that we provide a common operating system that is simple to use. Now, with the addition of WinCE, our UbiSurfer customers can access a new Windows compatible web browser and surf the internet using a clear and familiar interface.”

 

The UbiSurfer offers free-usage model, which eliminates the complexity of purchasing mobile web devices by eliminating lengthy contractual payments, activation fees and credit checks. With the UbiSurfer you pay for the device not the usage. For the average user, there are no monthly fees, airtime tariffs, contracts or recurring fees – Datawind pays for these. Users get 30 hours of free surfing a month for 12 months and 5p per minute roaming in Europe and the US. Upgrading to an unlimited usage package is available, and only an additional 5.99 a month.

 

Weighing just 700g and boasting a rubberised matt finish that resists fingerprints and scratches, the UbiSurfer has a compact, portable design meaning users can be connected anywhere, at anytime. Decked out with a seven inch TFT wide screen display that has an 800 by 480 pixel resolution, a full QWERTY keyboard and touchpad mouse pointer mean the UbiSurfer will fulfil most computing needs.

 
The UbiSurfer was specifically designed to provide enhanced functionality and convenience. The netbook offers 1GB SSD (solid state disk) shock proof storage plus 50GB of online storage. This can be expanded with a USB or SD Flash Memory device. Other features include an SD card reader meaning users can easily upload images, a built in dual speaker system and a stereo sound earphone jack. The battery offers up to four hours run time.
