VIA unveils 'GMB for Life' theme at VIA GMB Tech Forum Summer
VIA Technologies, a leading innovator of power efficient x86 processor platforms, today announced the VIA Global Mobility Bazaar (GMB) Tech Forum Summer, which was held earlier this afternoon at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Shenzhen, China.
Building on the success of the VIA GMB Tech Forum Spring event in mid-March this year, the VIA GMB Tech Forum Summer again brought together a host of PC manufacturing and infrastructure partners, as well as leading players from the telecommunication industry, all focused on delivering affordable, power efficient mini-notebooks to global markets. Over 400 participants listened to expert analysis of mini-note device segment trends and future potential, with particular emphasis paid to the importance of 3G integration and applications.
With component partners including leading vendors such as American Megatrends (AMI), InnoLux, ITE Tech, PQI, SanDisk and TD Hi-Tech already onboard, the VIA GMB Alliance has recently added leading Chinese IT service provider, Bluex, to its membership in order to offer after-sales service solutions for all certified devices manufactured by Alliance members.
This comprehensive end-to-end service gives rise to the 'GMB for Life' theme of today's event, and reflects the Alliance's ability to assist group members in providing products that can deliver the full benefits of a connected consumer lifestyle including online health services and free communications tools, along with a myriad of entertainment options.
"The mission of the VIA GMB Alliance is to link the complex chain of hardware and software vendors, manufacturers, distributors, retailers and service providers that make up the mini-notebook market ecosystem," said Kevin YC Huang, Chairman of the VIA GMB Alliance. "By doing this we create an environment where the 'GMB for Life' philosophy can flourish and inspire innovative devices that place the needs of the consumer first."
