Personal Internet Communicator (PIC)

AMD's first step in bringing new technology to achieve the 50x15 vision is a new device product category called the Personal Internet Communicator (PIC). The PIC is a low-cost, consumer-friendly, managed device that will put technology into the hands of first-time technology users in high-growth markets around the world, such as India, Mexico, Brazil, Russia and China.

The PIC is a new category of affordable consumer devices designed to provide managed Internet access for people in global, high-growth markets to enhance communications, entertainment and education opportunities. The PIC is an empowering connecting device — a simple and accessible platform designed to work with existing telecom dial-up or broadband infrastructure — that delivers Internet capabilities such as e-mail, downloads, Web browsing and more.

To protect system integrity and ensure trouble-free performance over time, the PIC is designed around a core set of software programs that drive basic Internet communication. These include a Microsoft® Windows® powered operating system and industry-standard text editor, picture/video viewer, and peripheral driver software.
