netopia to Provide ADSL Pocket Gateway for AMD Communicator

AMD selected Netopia's pocket gateway as an optional peripheral to help enable ADSL connections for its Personal Internet Communicator (PIC), a low-cost PC aimed at developing markets such as India, Mexico, Brazil, Russia and China. Netopia's 3342 ADSL Pocket Gateway connects directly to the USB port and is host powered, which eliminates the need for an external power supply. The Pocket Gateway can be installed in minutes using Netopia's installation wizards and built-in WebUI. The built-in PPPoE client on the Pocket Gateway eliminates licensing costs and reduces the support burden created by PPPoE client installation on the home computer.

AMD's Personal Internet Communicator (PIC), which was introduced in October 2004, has a suggested system price point is $185.00 with a keyboard, mouse, and preinstalled software; or $249.00 which also includes a monitor.
