France Telecom SA and IBM France SA have joined forces for the first time to market Djinn, a jointly developed micro communicator that combines facsimile, Minitel viewdata and answering machine functions in a personal computer. Djinn, which was developed with the assistance of two French companies, Com 1 SA and Integro SA, is a pocket-sized box that connects the personal computer to the telephone network. The product is being sold in two versions. For personal computers configured for Windows – 20MHz 80386SX, 4Mb memory, a 60Mb disk, Video Graphics Adaptor, MS-DOS 5.0 and Windows 3.1 Djinn comprises a modem and software developed by Com 1 and Integro, and it sells for the equivalent of about $725. Djinn is also available in an IBM bumper bundle, where it comes packed into a PS/ValuePoint with 25MHz 386SLC processor for approximately $2,150. The two implementations are marketed by IBM and IBM distributors in France. The Djinn box itself will be sold by EGT, France Telecom’s equipment marketing subsidiary.
