NCD is to show the first Microsoft-endorsed Windows-based terminal for Hydra at Comdex this week. The prototype Windows Terminal, codenamed Thumper, runs on Microsoft's palmtop operating system, Windows CE 2.0, rather than a desktop version of Windows. The terminal also uses the Citrix ICA protocol, rather than Microsoft's own T.Share protocol to present the Windows GUI on the display. Lou Greer, vice president at NCD explained: "T.Share is not available on Windows CE yet. We will support it when it is." Thumper comes in two forms. The lower specification Windows Terminal is based on a 100MHz MIPs R4300 processor; the faster device uses a 133MHz R4300 MIPs processor. Both configurations include 8Mb RAM as standard, expandable to 32Mb. Network connection is through a 10BaseT network adapter. On the video front, Thumper supports SVGA resolutions of 256 colour at 1,024 by 768. There is also 8-bit stereo audio. Greer could not give a ship date for the finished product but said it would be tied to the release of Hydra. Greer was also unable to reveal pricing but did say that prices of forthcoming NCD Windows Terminals would be similarly priced to existing NCD devices at the lower end of the price spectrum. These currently range in price from between $699 (#437) and $899 (#562). NCD 01753 736600.
