Pepper Pad: wireless Internet access and home appliances management

Pepper Computer Inc announced sales of the new Pepper Pad wireless solution. The novelty offers users access to the Internet, multimedia and even home appliances. Actually it´s a PC encased into a stylish body that has some software installed: Mozilla browser, AOL and email clients, multimedia manager, TV/etc. remote.

Pepper Pad has SVGA (800x600) display sized 8.4" and bases on Intel PXA270 624MHz CPU. Another chip, Intel 2700G, is dedicated to processing multimedia. The machine has a 20GB HDD, 256MB SDRAM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, IrDA, USB interfaces and SD/MMC. A mic and stereo speakers are also in place. One can connect headphones, external mic, display, optional mini-keypad with a scroller. Text input is handled by a simplified QWERTY keyboard, at that a larger one can be connected via Bluetooth or USB. Pepper Pad is encased into a waterproof body. Its battery is claimed to provide energy for the whole day.

Pepper Pad leaves PDAs and smartphones behind, but is still much simpler than a typical notebook. It seems Pepper Computer positions its novelty exactly as a home appliance than a PC.

Shipments are to launch on June 28, 2005. At the moment Pepper Pad is available for ordering for $850.
