Microsoft(R) Windows(R) Powered Smart Displays, the evolution of the monitor, will extend the power of Windows XP to any room in the home, connecting consumers to the information, applications and services they enjoy most anywhere and any time they need them. Smart Displays give people the power to quickly and easily browse the Web, read and write e-mail, listen to music, and view and edit digital images from any room in their home in a relaxed and informal setting -- regardless of where the PC is located. Smart Displays will do for the monitor what the cordless handset did for the telephone -- grant people greater freedom and mobility in their homes. Initially available as wireless monitors, Smart Displays will eventually be available in a variety of form factors such as high-definition televisions and projectors.
Smart Displays will enable consumers to extend the power of their personalized Windows XP experience to any room in the home. Utilizing a secure, wireless connection and flexible input and navigation, consumers are able to free themselves from their home office to enjoy relaxed computing. A simple automated setup process and instant-on support will help ensure that users are quickly and easily up and running and that they will continue to enjoy seamless access to their PC without a lengthy boot-up time. A variety of input and navigation methods, including a touch-sensitive screen with stylus input, resizable on-screen keyboard, writing pad with auto-complete and handwriting correction features, and support for cordless and USB keyboard and mouse, let consumers edit and access information and control applications.
