Unparalleled Mobile Gaming Device, based on Intel® Atom™ Processor, Developed by OCOSMOS Brings PC-like Power to Handheld Devices
OCOSMOS Co., Ltd, a leading innovator and developer of consumer electronics and solutions, today unveiled one of the world’s smallest personal computer and gaming devices: the OCS1 Tiny Computer (TC), revolutionizing both business and gaming mobile PC markets.
The OCS1 is a family of Tablet PCs powered by Intel’s next generation Atom™ platform codenamed “Oak Trail”, running Windows 7, and capable of running the most demanding online PC games, MMORPG, 3D, productivity and social networking applications. It’s a handheld mobile device with the power of a PC. Its OMOS Key user interface enhances the ease and speed of tasks and games commonly performed on a laptop or desktop and its intuitive control mechanism is superior to multi-touch interfaces for playing games and browsing the Web.
The OCS1 is a powerful mobile device that enables PC-based games and applications, with its OMOS interface, 5.0-Inch TFT Capacitive touch screen, QWERTY keyboard, connectivity over Wi-Fi, WiMax, detachable HSDPA, Bluetooth, GPS, and USB 2.0 HS, powerful stereo sound, gyroscope, and full Internet browsing capability, making it ideal for running the most demanding hardcore and social networking games and communities.
“Ever seen a handheld that can run StarCraft II? You have now,” says Sean Holister, contributing editor for engadget.com.
“OCS1 is the world’s first TC that provides the same experience of playing online games as on a PC,” said Eu-jin Oh, President of OCOSMOS. “Users will love the TC’s capabilities, ease of use, power, and mobility.”
The OCS1 TC delivers a new platform of tiny PC technology that benefits both business users and the gaming public, and its unique OMOS Key interface overcomes the limitations of existing mobile devices with an innovative OMOS Key interface.
“The Intel Atom processor is designed to deliver high performance and ultra low power across a range of connected mobile devices,” said Rene Torres, director of marketing for Intel’s Notebook and Tablet Group. “The OCS1, developed by OCOSMOS, represents a good example of what is possible with Intel’s upcoming Oak Trail platform.”
The OCS1 specifications include:
- Intel Oak Trail platform
- Up to 64GB of solid-state storage
- Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity
- 5.0-Inch TFT Capacitive Multi-touch screen
- 1024 x 600 pixel resolution capacitive touch screen
- Front and rear cameras (1.3MP Webcam in front , 3.1MP camera in back)
- A microphone for video chat sessions
- Windows 7 OS
- OMOS Key Interface: useful as a mouse, and customizable for character input
- 1GB of RAM installed, upgradable to 2GB
- Right/Left keys on the device shoulder for gaming
- microSD Memory Card Expansion Slots
“The TC is a revolution in mobile culture,” says OCOSMOS General Manager, Marketing, Jay-Hun Kim. “With its powerful Intel Atom processor, the OCS1 is positioned to win against other portable gaming consoles on the market, not to mention PCs, and users will find fast 2D and 3D image editing compelling”
The OCOSMOS OCS1 TC will be available in North America late in H1 2011, and will later be available in Korea and other global markets. OCOSMOS is planning to work with mobile operators, major online and offline distributors for the OCS1, and will collaborate with leading game developers to enhance existing games for the TC platform.
