Computex 2009 Press Conference
The VIA press conference took place at the Grand Hyatt Taipei Hotel on Wednesday 4th June. Richard Brown, Vice President of Marketing, gave a brief overview of the mobile market, and how VIA and its affiliate VIA Telecom are bridging the gap between mobile computing and communications.
Timothy Chen, Special Assistant to the President, reviewed short- and long-term trends, and noted how VIA's strategy has remained focused on power efficient design, rich feature integration and innovative platform design, driving the market towards smaller, lighter, more mobile systems – and even those that blur the standard device category boundaries, as x86, ARM and communications converge in ever more ubiquitous ways. He also noted how the burgeoning demand in China for all things tech is an ideal platform for the VIA GMB Alliance to help proliferate mini-notes in this exciting market.
Ker Zhang, the CEO of VIA Telecom, expanded on the China theme, giving an overview of the 3G market there, and how its CDMA silicon is helping to drive this market. An array of some of the latest devices was on show, including leading-brand notebooks and mini-notes, and boundary-blurring products such as the Fugoo digital internet device for the home.
