As part of the Oracle8/Network Computing Inc festivities at Radio City Music Hall in New York yesterday, DEC was showing off beta versions of a Digital NC, which uses a 233MHz version of its StrongARM implementation of the Advanced RISC Machines Ltd’s ARM RISC. DEC, which hasn’t publicly committed to selling its own devices, but is making the designs and technology available to third parties, says it it’ll have completed the remaining work within two months. DEC’s range of Shark NC designs can sit upright or flat on the desk and include a smart card slot from which the user can boot their Network Computer Inc NC desktop from a centrally-located server. DEC’s making the Shark designs available in a range of configurations from a $400 unit to the high-end $800 device which comes with scads of RAM and video RAM, serial and parallel ports and the ability to attach an external drive; both sans screen. DEC says those are end-user prices with a built in profit margin.
