A Thing Five


Speaking of Online


L eading technology market research firm International Data Corp. (IDC) notes that the U.S. market for Internet appliances is entering a period of rapid takeoff. These new devices are expected to surpass consumer personal computer shipments in 2002.

Internet appliances are easy-to-use, lower-cost devices designed solely for accessing the Internet. They do not typically have hard disk drives or some of the functions of more costly, but harder to use, personal computers.

As an even broader group of companies seeks to address the “Post-PC” era with these new devices, IDC expects the worldwide market for information appliances to exceed 89 million units, or $17.8 billion, in 2004 vs. 11 million units and $2.4 billion in 1999.

Look for further information about Internet appliances in future Green Sheet issues.
