Via Technologies, which is best known for its power efficient x86 processor platforms, is now looking to take advantage of the increasing popularity of touch screen devices with a new product aimed at “intelligent display” applications. Dubbed The VP7710 aimed at developers rather than end users, according to the company, targeting commercial applications such as home automation, ticketing, ATM, vending and information kiosks – but it is likely to prompt some interest from the ‘do-it-yourself’ crowd as well. The new system is compatible with Windows XP or CE 6.0 and Linux, but may also be able to run the forthcoming Windows 7 which includes built-in support for touch-based displays.
