Launched on October 28, 2008 the Global Mobility Bazaar (GMB) is an alliance of manufacturing and infrastructure partners led by VIA for the development of affordable mobile computing products for global markets.
The ecosystem of the GMB includes at its inception key infrastructure partners including Microsoft, AMI, and ITE to provide support and speed the growth for the 15 manufacturing partners who will introduce exciting new netbook and notebook designs that extend the options and price points for consumers everywhere.
VIA's driving of the Global Mobility Bazaar shows a commitment to making computing technologies available to people of all walks of life whether it be for education, sustainable businesses or core communications needs. Affordable 7" to 15" notebook mobile devices are widely regarded as the appropriate solution for emerging market consumer needs.
GMB products by their affordable nature also encourage new business models such as telecom carrier hardware subsidization that further reduce the initial investment costs to consumers who want the latest advantages that modern computing delivers.
VIA's role in the GMB also means the mobile products across the globe will bring the benefits of power efficient VIA processor platforms based around the VIA C7-M and VIA Nano processors to a world where power costs and environmental responsibility are of the utmost importance.
