For the most part, "netbook" and "HD capable" really don't go together. Particularly if it's a netbook equipped with the all too familiar Atom N270 + GMA 950 combo. But things look a bit different if the machine is loaded with innards from a different manufacturer...namely, VIA. The unheard of Shenzhen Zaiben Technology Company, likely a low-rate Chinese OEM, has just introduced a new "clamshell PC" dubbed the F88, which looks to be one of the most multimedia-friendly netbooks to date. Boasting a 10" display with a common 1024x600 resolution, the machine also features a 1.6GHz VIA Nano processor,... Read more...
Wow Shuttle, branching out, are we? The company made famous for delivering rectangular barebones kits that ruled the SFF roost for years is now spreading its wings and delving into more low-power type rigs. Don't believe us? Have a look at the latest release from VIA, which proves that Shuttle is accepting VIA's Nano CPU in its newest small form factor PC. The fanless Shuttle XS29F is smaller and less flashy than most of Shuttle's wares, and the company is targetting home users and small business users who don't really need loads of horsepower to handle basic daily work tasks such as email, Word...

Not sure if you've noticed, but VIA is definitely getting deep into the media server game. Shortly after launching its NSD7200 2-bay Windows Home Server device, the company has today introduced a new motherboard aimed specifically at these very servers. The VB8002 Mini-ITX board brings the performance efficiency of the VIA Nano processor to consumer-focused server products, and to date, it's been Intel's Atom stuck within most of these devices.Not surprisingly, it looks like VIA is eager to steal away some of that market share, and this is a perfect area to do it. Media servers don't require huge... Read more...
Frankly, many technology pundits have already brushed WiMAX aside as a failed attempt to become the next high-speed mobile data protocol. With LTE gaining massive support, it's hard to envision WiMAX -- a technology that is already deployed in many areas of the world -- hanging around for too long. If VIA has anything to say about it, however, it'll do just fine.Today, VIA Technologies -- the company responsible for low-power processors in UMPCs, embedded devices and select netbooks -- has announced its participation in the Tatung University WiMAX Application Lab project that brings together industry...
