HCL Infosystems Ltd. – nation’s premier information enabling and integration company and developer of India’s first PC – today launched HCL Beanstalk 2007 Collection – and once again, changed the meaning of what ‘computers’ can deliver. Unleashing a range of four new HCL Beanstalk digilife-enablers, this engaging & futuristic range endeavors to transform a personal computer from being a workstation to being the epicenter of ‘digital lifestyle’ at one’s drawing rooms.
The new range included HCL Beanstalk Nano – a 42 mm high – ‘small’ computing powerhouse, which with its ‘big’ functionalities, has redefined ‘portability’ for desktops; HCL Beanstalk Lyfestyle – the first ever PC to feature a complete 10 foot wide digital user interface and is a composite entertainment enabler; HCL Beanstalk Dominator – India’s most powerful gaming PC with graphic & processing capabilities to make you city’s newest gaming god; and HCL Beanstalk Slim – the ultra-slim genius with really thick set of ‘all-in-one’ capabilities, which would open new horizons of unlimited possibilities.
Taking a giant futuristic technology stride and re-discovering desktops, Mr. Ajai Chowdhry – Chairman & CEO, HCL Infosystems Ltd., said, “HCL has always been at forefront of defining the trends in the Indian PC market. Continuing further on our endeavor to enable ‘true’ digital lifestyle, we are proud to today write yet another chapter in the future of PC technology – and offer a range, which is capable of perhaps being called as ‘global first’ in its category. This launch, besides meeting and exceeding the demands of today’s tech-hungry families, also reflects HCL’s continued commitment to sustain its leadership in desktops and pioneer path-breaking technologies. Though we never have been ‘small’ in the Indian PC industry, the HCL Beanstalk 2007 collection definitely announces our ‘Big’ conquest.”
Commenting on the launch, Mr. Hitendra Chaturvedi, Senior Director – OEM, Microsoft Corporation India Pvt. Ltd. said, “Indian consumers are fast moving into the world of converged, digital experiences and devices & software that can help drive these, are the future of technology. Converged devices such as the HCL range of digital lifestyle enablers powered by the Microsoft Windows XP operating system are fast catching the fancy of the consumer to become the center of the entire digital lifestyle, and I am sure that they will be immensely popular in India.” He further added, “Over the next few months, consumers can combine the power of these devices with the soon-to-be launched Windows Vista platform, and take the digital experience to an even greater high.”
Creating new benchmarks in offering breakthrough experiences through connected devices and compelling software applications, coupled with gen-next design elements, HCL Beanstalk will give a tough competition to existing entertainment & lifestyle devices. Not only does the entire range have a host of ‘aspirational’ features as part of standard configurations – such as Microsoft Windows Media Centre; wireless connectivity; wireless peripherals such as mouse & keyboards; dual layer DVD recorder – but also is empowered with cool add-ons such as xpress recovery tools, pre-installed broadband internet pack and a complete pre-loaded entertainment kit including games, recipes, multi-lingual software package and lot more. Further more, all HCL Beanstalk PCs in this range are ready for Windows Vista – the new generation software standard, soon to be launched.
“This new range of PCs from HCL uses Intel’s Core 2 Extreme processor to deliver immense speed and responsiveness for digital media creation, high-end gaming and is aimed at market segments which crave absolute performance” said Prakash Bagri, Director – OEM Business, Intel India.
The new PCs are also based on Intel® ViivT technology. Intel® ViivT technology is designed to enhance and help manage the enjoyment of digital entertainment in the home. With Intel® ViivT technology-based PCs consumers can not only connect to the TV, but also create music, play games and showcase home photos and videos making it a ‘one-stop-shop’ for entertainment.”
The immediacy, global reach and on-demand nature of the Internet supports a new trend in how people get their entertainment, “Intel intends to accelerate this trend through relationships with leaders in digital entertainment worldwide. This is about delivering content at home, creating ‘music DJs,’ playing games and showcasing home photos and videos – it’s a ‘one-stop-shop’ for entertainment.
Further more, with this range – HCL Infosystems Ltd. would also be aiming to create a marketing history in the Indian hardware sector – by becoming the first-ever PC brand to be pre-launched on select websites – before hitting the shelves of various stores nationwide.
Sharing the details of exclusive web launch initiative, Mr. Rajendra Kumar – Executive Vice President, HCL Infosystems Ltd., said, “The HCL Beanstalk 2007 collection has been designed for the new-gen lifestyle & technology customers – and thus adopting the medium of internet to exclusively reach out to these audiences, seemed to be an exciting fit. To complement our marketing initiatives, we have also commissioned a new advertising campaign – which would make any other ‘big’ player look ‘small’ in its offerings for the customer. We invite you to log in to a new computing era!”
The complete range of HCL Beanstalk PCs comes up with HCL’s ‘Best Assured’ promise of India’s largest service & support network to ensure that even if you take a break at times, your own ‘digital lifestyle’ doesn’t.
