Pen&Internet demonstrate handwriting recognition on Antelope MCC
Pen&Internet announced a collaboration with Transmeta to bring to market software applications for a new category of computers: the Ultra Personal Computer (UPC). Examples of this type computers is the Antelope Technologies' Modular Computing Core (MCC) and the OQO (this one still "in development" it seems, since it never reaches the market and is always being announced).

The UPC represents a new mobile computing paradigm that delivers the power and performance of a desktop computer with all the portability and size benefits of a handheld PDA-sized device.

During the Consumer Electronics Show 2004 (CES), Transmeta will demonstrate Pen&Internet's latest advanced handwriting recognition and electronic ink products on the world's first shipping Ultra Personal Computer. Produced by Antelope Technologies, the Modular Computing Core (MCC) device is bundled with Pen&Internet's ritePen advanced handwriting recognition application, which also enables riteForm recognition solution for processing handwritten forms on mobile pen-enabled devices.

The UPC is targeted to mobile professionals, including mobile sales and field service personnel. It addresses the growing needs of users who require a single, portable device capable of running all of the applications they already use. Based on estimates from analyst firm Creative Strategies, the UPC market is expected to grow from 350,000 units in sales in 2004 to 1.7 million by 2006.

"The real promise of a UPC is its ability to be a compete mirror of people's primary PCs that can fit in the pocket and be carried with them at all times," said Tim Bajarin, President of analyst firm Creative Strategies. "Pen&Internet's handwriting recognition, advanced note-taking and forms processing applications are a natural fit and ideally suited for pen input on UPC devices."

Pen&Internet's ritePen allows users to intelligently navigate the desktop and write on the full screen in smooth electronic ink -- and their handwriting is automatically converted into text and entered into target applications. riteForm is an advanced forms recognition solution which adds context awareness to handwritten forms, substantially improving their recognition by assigning custom vocabularies and data templates to individual fields. riteMail is an advanced note-taking and communications application with handwriting, shape and chart recognition, smart printing and other features.
