Samsung’s IZZI Web a Windows CE Internet Appliance


Samsung’s IZZI web is the latest addition to a new and upcoming breed of Windows CE 3.0-based Internet appliances, and features a 10.4-inch LCD screen, a 200 MHz processor and 32 MB RAM.

As Samsung rolls out its new IZZI web webpad, the company joins a range of other so-called Internet appliance manufacturers that all seek to conquer your living room. Whether or not Samsung’s product is up to the task we will refrain from judging until we’ve tried the device ourselves – but according to its specifications it looks like a real contender in the fight for couch potatoes all over the world.

The IZZI web runs on a National Semiconductor (NS) Geode GX-1 200 MHz processor combined with Microsoft’s latest version of its consumer-oriented embedded operating system, Windows CE 3.0. Add to this 32 MB of SDRAM and 16 MB Flash ROM, a 10.4″ TFT LCD display with a resolution of 800 x 600 pixels and a 16-bit color depth (65536 colors), and you’ll compete with the best of what’s available on the market so far.
