So hey, our mission is to advance the PC experience across the entire industry.
And that's why we started on a multi year journey that we call Project Athena to drive that innovation.
And that was really driven off a deep human level understanding of how people use their devices.
And it's more ambitious than anything that we've done in the industry before.
And for the first time we developed a specification with all of our partners, many of whom are here today to really deliver on the key experiences that keep people care about the most so that people know when they get a project to thena based device, they can be certain that it's been tuned, tested and verified to actually deliver on that experience.
Like all of our products that are including projects Athena, we have the widest application compatibility and hardware compatibility to give you the best experience in the industry.
So the response has been tremendous.
And I'm incredibly proud to be standing here today and tell you that in less than a year, we have already verified 25 new project Athena unique based devices that I have here on stage with me today.
Now what's even more impressive than just the number is really the breadth of designs from consumer all the way to commercial, and they're really setting a new standard for mobile computing in the industry.
Now for consumers that means nine plus hours of battery life, but like in real working conditions actually using the device, or of course more than 16 hours of continuous local video playback.
It means better responsiveness and performance right helping you Helping launch applications faster, less time spent when you're going in between tasks, keeping you in the flow and keeping you focused.
It also means fast charging capabilities, getting four more hours of battery life in just 30 minutes of charging, and then absolutely no lack time.
All of those devices on stage, when you open the lid, will resume from standby in less than one second.
And many more things and in the commercial space in addition all that we've got v pro capabilities, and enhanced security, and manageability for professionals and IT professionals all around the world.
So with that, I did want to have Chuck and I just quickly highlight a couple of designs that are new launching at CES right here today and I've got a consumer example.
So here's the Acer swift three.
It's thin, it's light, with a screen-to-body ratio of nearly 85%.
It's incredibly immersive.
Yeah, that's a great consumer example, and I know you have one commercial example I really love.
Yeah, I love this one.
Now, this is the HP Dragonfly Elite.
It's also very thin, 360 degree hinge, built-in privacy screen.
And also, the first laptop that uses Plastic recycled from the ocean as part of the construction process extremely cool.
Wow, that's really unique.
Let's get my hand I think that's great.
Now the momentum for project Athena is continuing in 2020.
We now have over 120 companies, onboarding, helping us drive all this innovation.
And together with our partners, we're committed to doubling down, and doubling the number of designs in 2020 to over 50.
But our ambitions for projects [UNKNOWN] even greater.
We're gonna continue to add partners and experiences.
And I'm pleased to announce one today.
We've been working with Google now for years, from the very beginning.
And we started really working with them to bring the highest performance experience possible.
To Chromebooks based on Intel Core based processors in their Chromebooks laptops.
Now, what I'm excited here today is to say we have extended our partnership with Google to include project Athena for the first time.
Which means you're gonna get all the leading security manageability ease of use And nearly 3 million applications in the Google Play store all together on exciting new project at the end of devices.
And further, I have the privilege today.
It's not just the partnership of actually launching the first two project Athena verified Chromebooks.
On stage with me and Chuck you've got them right here.
SoI have The Asus stylus, I mean Asus flipbook, the C436, again, incredibly stylish and also we have the brand new Galaxy Chromebook from Samsung.
Also very stylish, 9.9 millimeteres thin, 4K AMOLED screen, the colours are vivid, the screen is bright and you get all the benefits thaT GG just told you.
Super, super immersive brand new display, great technology.
And that's just the start.
You can expect us to drive more designs, more innovation all through the year in 2020.
