VIA today announced that the eighth annual VIA Technology Forum will take place in Taipei on Wednesday 6 June, during Computex 2007, with the theme of “Ultra Mobility”. The convergence of computing, communications and entertainment applications and services combined with significant advances in technology integration, power efficiency and miniaturization is accelerating the development and proliferation of a new generation of x86 devices that are smaller, lighter, quieter and with longer battery life than ever before. As the industry leader in ultra mobile platforms, VIA has charged VTF2007 with outlining the principal industry strategies required to drive this trend.

VIA Technologies, Inc, a leading innovator and developer of silicon chip
technologies and PC platform solutions, today announced that the eighth annual
VIA Technology Forum will take place in Taipei on Wednesday 6 June, during
Computex 2007, with the theme of “Ultra Mobility”.

The convergence of computing, communications and entertainment applications and
services combined with significant advances in technology integration, power
efficiency and miniaturization is accelerating the development and proliferation
of a new generation of x86 devices that are smaller, lighter, quieter and with
longer battery life than ever before. As the industry leader in ultra mobile
platforms, VIA has charged VTF2007 with outlining the principal industry
strategies required to drive this trend.

“Enabling the ultra mobile lifestyle is all about making access to the content,
applications, and services that people want and need as convenient as possible,”
commented Richard Brown, Vice President of Corporate Marketing, VIA
Technologies, Inc. “At VTF2007, VIA and our partners will lay out our vision and
strategy for making this a reality.”

VTF2007 will consist of a one-day event at the Grand Hyatt Taipei Hotel with a
compelling program of keynote addresses, and specialist presentations in two
technology tracks:

Enabling Ultra Mobility

This track examines the latest ultra mobile platform technologies that extend
battery life, enhance connectivity and drive platform miniaturization, and the
key applications and services that are enabling greater convenience and access
to communications, information and entertainment resources; together with a
maturing infrastructure, they are driving the adoption of these ultra mobile
devices.

Connected Client Computing

This track looks at the key trends in client computing, including developments
in software and hardware, and their impact on the total cost of ownership; it
will also focus on innovative approaches to client computing that are opening up
whole new possibilities for enabling access to IT, highlighting case studies of
successful implementations in both developed and emerging markets.
