Boundless Technologies, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Boundless
Corporation, today unveiled its latest offerings in the company's Capio II
line of low-cost, thin-client computing devices. The new Capio II models
420
and 425 Windows-based Terminals (WBTs) are the first in the product line
to
feature a built-in Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 web browser for local
Internet access. The model 425 makes its debut today at the Citrix Systems
Solutions Summit in Miami, Florida.

Building on the fast, cost-effective Capio II hardware platform, Boundless
has expanded its Microsoft Windows CE-based thin-client family to offer
the
ability to access web-based applications directly from the desktop instead
of via the server, eliminating unnecessary traffic on the network and
reducing server load, thereby boosting performance. With standard 16 MB of
flash memory and 32 MB of RAM, both the model 420 and 425 offer support of
multiple simultaneous sessions and permit local storage of favorite
websites.

Both models support the Citrix ICA protocol and Microsoft Remote Desktop
Protocol (RDP) and provide users with a choice of thin-client server
solutions such as Citrix WinFrame and MetaFrame, as well as Microsoft
Windows NT 4.0 Terminal Server Edition and Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced
Server. For those who require access to UNIX and other legacy
applications,
the model 425 also offers a broad range of popular text terminal
emulations.
Recommended list price for Europe starts at $567 for the model 420 and
$641
for the model 425.

"Today's launch of our Capio II 420 and 425 web browser models broadens
our
portfolio of thin clients to meet a wider range of customer needs," said
Michael Oliva, managing director at Boundless Technologies, Inc. "The
Capio
II's flexible design permits the user to designate the terminal as an
Internet appliance for direct desktop access to email and web-based
applications and for general web browsing, or, if need be as a Windows
terminal to simultaneously access a wide variety of server-based Windows
applications. While the flexibility of the model 420 and model 425 enables
users to custom tailor the thin clients to meet particular requirements,
their low acquisition costs will permit our customers to affordably adopt
or
expand a thin-client computing solution."

The Capio II models 420 and 425 feature on-board audio, dual USB ports,
optional single/double serial ports, support for 10/100 Ethernet, a high
1280 x 1024 selectable resolution, and printer and touch-screen support,
making them among the most feature-rich in their class. Both models are
expected to be available in February.
