Do you dread performing a cold boot on your laptop or Tablet PC, or do you just head for a cup of coffee after hitting the switch? Wouldn’t you love to see your Tablet PC boot with warp drive like speed? Well, Phoneix Techologies isn’t working on a warp drive but they are working on HyperSpace. The idea behind HyperSpace is to embedd a user’s most referenced applications into a layer on top of the BIOS so that they can be launched without a full boot into Windows. A press of the F4 key launches you into HyperSpace. Phoneix is targeting this long term as a key to “ultrapersonalized” computers, so that a user (or group of users) will have applications they need to access quickly at the press of a key.
This is certainly an interesting development for mobile users, and it looks like we may see computers being shipped with HyperSpace sometime in 2008.
