Product Demos:


HyperSpace is a revolutionary computing environment, which delivers instant-on, always-connected access to the Internet and key productivity applications. Users can begin working on business documents, presentations or spreadsheets, searching the web, and sending and receiving email within seconds of turning on their notebooks, smartbooks or netbooks. HyperSpace also automatically connects mobile devices to the best available network and swaps connections as a user moves without any additional steps. HyperSpace is available for OEMs and ODMs but is also available for end users at www.hyperspace.com

Phoenix Freeze(TM)

Phoenix Freeze is a convenient, always-on anti-theft and privacy solution that pairs a Bluetooth phone to the user’s PC so that the PC is automatically locked when the user walks away with their phone. When the user returns within a certain proximity range (pre-defined by the user) of their PC, the PC is automatically unlocked. This combination offers safety, security and peace of mind without the annoying effort required to constantly lock and unlock the PC with passwords or finger swipes. Freeze is available to PC OEMs for incorporating into future laptops and for consumer download at www.PhoenixFreeze.com or at www.esupport.com


The award-winning Phoenix FailSafe gives notebook users the ability to control and track their mobile PC and, if it’s lost or stolen, remotely retrieve, encrypt or erase valuable data stored on their device. FailSafe also enables users to collect important information to help law enforcement recover a stolen PC or prosecute the thief if caught. FailSafe is the first completely embedded theft deterrence and data protection solution to offer consumers complete control over their mobile PCs and the peace-of-mind that comes with knowing the valuable personal information that constitutes their digital lives is protected if their mobile PC is lost or stolen.
