CherryPal launches ultra-simple cloud PC
Cloud PC, the CherryPal Desktop, would soon be available in the market. The customers would be able to benefit a lot from this paperback-book sized book, which has 256MB of DDR2 memory and a 4GB flash drive. It basically runs on Freescale’s MPC5121e mobileGT processor.
CherryPal cloud PC will also have 50GB of Internet storage, which would be managed and protected by CherryPal staff.
This budget-priced, maintenance free PC has a 20-second boot-up time. The online administrators of the company would perform all system maintenance for users, with automatic backups that ensure no files are lost.
The cloud PC is mainly targeted towards students aged 14 to 25.
iTunes and OpenOffice as well as a CherryPal-branded instant messenger and media client are included in its Web-based applications.
The CherryPal desktop uses only 2 watts of the power because of its lack of high-spec components.
A VGA output allows a monitor to be hooked up, with other inputs comprised of a pair of USB 2.0 ports, and a 3.5mm headphone jack output.
CherryPal’s webstore will have the CherryPAL Desktop by the end of this month. In September Amazon.com would also supply the product, which is priced at $249.
