Windows XP Professional computer that fits in the palm of your hand
Antelope Tech set 7th November as the date to release the "Modular Computing Platform", a full Windows XP computer in a hand size form factor.

But the concept doesn't mean you'll replace the big beige computer box under your desk with something that small. The MCC is a "Modular" computer.

Simply plug the MCC into any one of the shells that are designed for it, from us or our partners, and you can use it in a variety of ways. Plug it into the Desktop Dock and your big desktop monitor, keyboard and mouse comes to life with the Windows desktop you've come to depend on.

The comnpany sees a day when you get up from your desk and plug your MCC into a handheld shell, the same Windows desktop(including all your applications and all your data) are now usable as you are on the move. They also think of in-vehicle shells, laptop shells, home network shells, and many more shells that would enable the use of the same computer anywhere.

At the heart of the Platform is the Modular Computing Core or "MCC", a full computer that measures only 7.6 x 12.7 x 1.9 cm (3" x 5" x 3/4").

The MCC contains all the normal features of a desktop computer: a processor, a hard drive, memory, video card, audio card, Windows XPTM Professional, and more. It is an amazingly compact replacement for that big computer box under your desk. And by being so small, you can take it with you at all times (in your pocket if you like), unlike your desktop computer.
