SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 30, 2003

Wyse(R) Winterm(TM) 3820TX Recognized As One of the Best Tablet

Hardware Devices in This Year's Mobile Star Awards

Wyse Technology, the domain experts in server-centric computing, today announced that its Winterm 3820TX tablet thin client has been awarded the Silver Star in the annual Mobile Star Awards sponsored by Mobile Village, a market and solution development company dedicated to advancing mobile and wireless enterprise computing. Wyse's tablet thin client stood apart in its category, which included Tablet PCs and mobile thin clients. Introduced in January 2003, the Winterm 3820TX combines the mobility and convenience of a Tablet PC, with the security, reliability and lower management costs of a thin client. The lightweight tablet satisfies a growing demand for instant wireless access to corporate networks from industries where employees require mobility within a building or campus.

Wyse's tablet thin client was recognized by Mobile Village in their search to identify the best companies, products, implementations and leaders in mobile and wireless technology. Winners were selected by readers of Mobile Village's Go Mobile(R) newsletter, which included technology executives, buyers, IT managers and top technology journalists. Readers chose Gold and Silver star winners from over 100 entries in the various categories. The Winterm 3820TX was recognized for its security, affordability and reliability, along with the integrated Rapport(TM) for Wyse thin-client management tool that leverages the value of an enterprise's IT infrastructure for maximum ROI.

"With literally tens of thousands of mobile technology companies doing business and several thousand more started every year, IT buyers and solution providers need help in spotting the very best companies, products, potential partners, and implementations," says Jon Covington, chairman and founder of MobileVillage / PDA Inc. "The recognition of Wyse's tablet thin client as one of the best tablets on the market indicates its ability to meet these needs and provide an exceptional product to mobile and wireless customers."

"This award illustrates Wyse's ability to deliver innovative products that meet the needs and requirements of today's increasingly mobile workforce," said Mark McKinney, product manager for Wyse Technology. "The recognition of Wyse's tablet thin client by experts in the mobile and wireless industry is further validation of the quality of our products. Wyse will continue to deliver high quality products that meet specific needs of our customers as we expand our portfolio of products and services beyond desktop thin clients."

The Winterm 3820TX ensures that critical data and software are stored on the server, not the device, and therefore provides greater security than other mobile devices. Based on Windows CE, it is the only tablet thin client managed by Rapport for Wyse, the industry standard in thin-client management software, which empowers IT staff to manage all Wyse thin clients from a single centralized location, reducing IT management costs and complexities and sparing non-technical staff from any need to update or maintain their mobile device. The wireless tablet is also more reliable because it has no moving parts and its unique streamlined user interface ensures the device provides unmatched simplicity and ease of use.

While IT managers may appreciate its management and security benefits, Wyse's tablet thin client provides many advantages for its users. It comes with a 12.1-inch LCD touch screen, CalliGrapher(R) handwriting recognition, a virtual keyboard, the Microsoft Windows CE operating system, embedded support for Microsoft Remote Desktop Protocol 5.0 and Citrix ICA resident communications protocols, and 32 MB of internal memory.


Wyse Technology maximizes the benefits of server-centric computing. The company delivers access to Windows and web applications and has end-to-end expertise from the server, through the network, to the desktop. Wyse makes server-centric computing more manageable and cost-effective through: software that delivers better ROI from existing servers and PCs; desktop and mobile thin-clients that provide easy and affordable access to information; software tools that manage a broad spectrum of information access devices, and professional services to make it all work better together. Wyse customers gain a greater return from their existing technology investments, mitigate business risks, and improve their bottom line. The company has been #1 in thin-client market share for the last five years, and has been named Microsoft "Embedded Partner of the Year" for three years running. The company has headquarters in San Jose, California, with offices worldwide. For more information, visit the Wyse Website at or call 1-800-GET-WYSE.
