Wyse Technology believes desktop and mobile computing devices can never be too rich or too thin.
And one day, according to Chief Marketing Officer Jeff McNaught, they might even be free.
On Monday, the San Jose, Calif.-based company used the VMworld 2007 conference in San Francisco as the forum to announce the release of its latest desktop thin client machine, dubbed the V class LE, two new thin-client notebooks and some new software that promises to deliver rich multimedia features to users enamored with lighter, cheaper and more energy-efficient computing devices.
"This is the next major step in our industry and part of our strategy to move to even thinner thin client," McNaught said in an interview with InternetNews.com. "By removing the local operating systems from the thin client, we're making them easier to use, more affordable and more flexible for IT departments. Eventually, we can see cable companies or phone companies giving away the devices for free. They'll just rely more on the network, just like a phone or a TV, and will eventually become disposable."
