Founder Signs
Founder Technology Group Corp, one of China's largest PC makers, has signed a genuine Windows engagement agreement with Microsoft.

This agreement states that the two companies will collaborate on joint marketing, sales and training programs to promote the use of genuines versions of Windows on Founder branded PCs for the Chinese market.

In 2005, Founder sold 2.5 million PCs, which places it as China's second largest PC maker, with Lenovo as China's largest PC maker.

"Intellectual property rights protection is critical to the healthy development of China's IT industry," said Kevin Turner, chief operating officer of Microsoft. "Microsoft is committed to working closely with industry partners, customers and governments to promote IPR protection and provide more value and greater services to our genuine software customers in China and around the world."

Founder is also the maker of a UMPC to be released onto the market sometime this year. The Founder Mini-Note will be China’s first Ultra Mobile PC (UMPC) and features a 7" WVGA screen, 30-60 GB 1.8" hard disk, integrated WiFi and Bluetooth, two USB2.0 ports, and weighs slightly over 800 grams. Founder is targeting both consumer and commercial segments with its 7" UMPC.
