is changing the ways of life everywhere. Most of the people
whether they reside in cities or villages eager to experience
the magic of the net at their homes. But the exorbitant
cost of the computers bridled their enthusiasm. The computer
prices no longer hinder the zeal of the people as HCL
Ezeebee enters the market. HCL, one of the
leading manufacturers of the PCs in India, launched a
new generation computer called HCL Ezeebee in Hyderabad
and all over India. HCL Ezeebee, the first-ever consumer
friendly Internet device aims to bring Internet in the
reach of every person.
The key features of the HCL Ezeebee are - streamline design
with built in 14"/15" CRT monitor, high screen
resolution (800 x 600), full size keyboard and 2 button
scroll mouse, 2 USB ports, parallel printer port. There
is no CPU but the HCL Ezeebee, comes with the in-built
modem. Backed by the Internet service HCL infinet, it
takes less than a minute to connect to the Internet. So
all you have to do is to connect the power, the telephone
line and press the power switch and you would have the
power of World Wide Web at your fingertips.
The relative low cost and the lesser number of accessories
that the device has when compared to the normal PC would
be a boon to net savvy families and institutions like
hotels, cyber cafes, libraries, etc where the PC is predominantly
used for connecting with the World Wide Web. It could
also serve as an ideal second computer device at homes.
Priced around Rs. 20,000, Ezeebee would be available from
HCL dealers all over India from June 2001.
