Thin clients get embedded Windows

by on14 July 2010

Embedded with Lenovo and VXL
VXL has released two portable thin clients designed in conjunction with Lenovo. The gear uses Windows XP Embedded or Windows Embedded Standard operating systems.

The 11.6-inch Itona TL100 includes a 1.0GHz AMD Athlon Neo MV-40 processor, while the 14.1-inch Itona TL412 has a dual-core, 1.86GHz Intel Celeron processor.

The gear is similar to earlier portable thin clients such as the Itona TL100 and TL412. To our eyes they are a glorified netbook with a hard disk.

VXL says the design is based on a Lenovo ThinkPad and the new Itona TL100 has an 11.6-inch display with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels and an AMD Athlon MV-40 processor. The beast has up to 4GB of RAM via two SODIMM slots, says VXL.

The device includes Windows Media Player, Adobe Acrobat Reader, XLmanage Workgroup Edition remote management software, and clients for Citrix's ICA and Ericom's Blaze.

The Itona TL100 are said to include a VGA port, a gigabit Ethernet port, three USB 2.0 ports, a microphone input, and a headphone output. The TL100 also includes a "4-in-1" memory card reader and 802.11b/g/n wireless networking.

According to VXL, the TL412 has an ExpressCard slot, a bay that can accept an available optical disk drive, and a port for an optional Lenovo docking station. There is an IEEE 1394 port, stereo speakers, a microphone input, a headphone output, and even a S/PDIF digital optical output.

The TL412 is said to include 1GB of RAM and 1GB of flash storage. It ships with either Windows XP Embedded or Windows Embedded Standard, plus the same software as the TL100, VXL adds.
