Vulcan to Showcase FlipStart at
SEATTLE -- February 2004 -- Vulcan Inc.,
founded by Paul Allen, announced today that it will preview FlipStart at DEMO 2004,
the premiere forum for new product innovation. Previously debuted as Vulcans
MiniPC prototype, FlipStart combines the performance and functionality
of Windows® XP with the connectivity of wireless PDAs to provide users with continuous
access to software, email, and the Web while on the go.
"DEMO has selected FlipStart as an
unprecedented demonstration of power and flexibility in mobile computing," said Chris
Shipley, executive producer of the DEMO Conferences. "Vulcan has raised the bar for
the entire category. The small form-factor and its always-on connectivity liberates
workers from the office desktop to make mobile professionals more productive.. This is
another unique example of Paul Allens visionary approach to improving technology by
offering people new levels of portable productivity and connectivity."
