AMD and Cable & Wireless Launch Max Personal Internet Communicator in Jamaica
AMD and Cable & Wireless are launching the Max Personal Internet Communicator (PIC) in Jamaica, bundled with Cable & Wireless' High Speed Internet service.

The PIC is a new category of Internet access devices running Microsoft Windows CE operating system and designed to provide managed Internet connectivity and basic computing capabilities such as a Web browser, e-mail, productivity tools (e.g. word processing and spreadsheet applications) and the ability to view images and multimedia files. PICs are easy to maintain and are designed to help resist viruses, adware and spyware that can significantly lower cost of maintenance.

AMD announced the PIC concept in late 2004. According to the company the PIC has been developed as part of AMD's global "50x15" initiative of providing Internet and computing capabilities to 50 percent of the world's population by the year 2015.

The introduction of the Max PIC in Jamaica signifies a continued expansion of Cable & Wireless Internet access offerings in the region. The Max PIC is now available in the British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Anguilla, Turks, Caicos, Barbados, St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Antigua & Barbuda and Dominica.

Even though Jamaica and the British Virgin Islands are two of the most Internet-connected countries in the Caribbean, the vast majority of citizens still do not have Internet access. Less than 23 percent of Jamaica's population is connected and only 19 percent of British Virgin Islands citizens have Web access.
