The company says the embedded Windows operating system inside the TPMC-10 is totally locked-down, eliminating the chance of downloading viruses or mistakenly writing over files - all while providing WPA-ready WiFi compatibility for communications through any 802.11b or g wireless network.
The release says the TPMC-10 is designed to provide an IP-based mobile control solution in a compact package that's easy to hold and intuitive to use. Its smart design achieves an optimal viewing angle under any use, with four programmable hard buttons and an integrated thumbpad to provide tactile control of audio volume, channel selection, OSM navigation (DVD, DSS, etc.), or even pan/tilt cameras.
The TPMC-10 can be charged from its optional docking station, while being connected to a USB mouse and keyboard.
