today unveiled its Winterm line of Internet access, thin client computing devices. All four Winterm models offer point-to-point protocol and modem capabilities, and allow users to rent Microsoft
Windows applications from Internet Service Providers.
The Winterm Model 2300 has a "paperback-book-sized" logic box that can support either a wall-mounted or freestanding display, while Winterm 2000T, 2500T, and 2700T come with either 14 or 15-inch displays. All four models come equipped with a keyboard and a mouse.
Through agreements with select ISPs, users will be able to access the ISP1s library of Windows software similar to the way they would rent a pay-per-view movie from their cable television provider. The company says rental fees will start at about a dollar per hour.
All four Winterm thin client computing devices will be available in July with prices starting at $500.
