Asustek, Intel launch expanded WePC community
Press release, November 19; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Friday 19 November 2010]
Asustek Computer and Intel have launched a new and expanded WePC community and the application is open to anyone with a passion for technology, especially Asustek products with Intel Inside. Building on its mission to bridge innovation and technology with consumers' needs, the new WePC.com has more ways for fans to present their ideas, interact with community members and drive product development for two of the world's leading technology brands.
As one of the first crowdsourcing communities, WePC.com empowered members to play an integral role in the PC design process of a number of cutting-edge technologies, such as intuitive touchscreen interfaces and kid-friendly netbooks. Last year at CeBIT, Asustek initiated the industry's first dual-panel concept notebooks, making intuitive control possible. The community also supported the direction for the development of future pad devices.
The community features sections that are tailored to members' diverse interests, such as those who value impeccable sound quality in high-fidelity home entertainment computers. Another section is geared toward serious multitaskers and early adopters interested in the evolving technology for pad devices. A third area is designed for parents who want to share information about how technology works in both their kids' lives and family life.
The new community enlivens members' experiences by offering challenges, contests and even more ways to participate. Fans can also join the conversation when they're on Facebook, since the WePC Facebook page complements the WePC community with related features and functionality.
In addition, WePC members who want to be more actively involved can apply to be part of an exclusive group that will play an integral role as the community grows and receive special perks, such as direct access to Asustek and Intel, unique product testing opportunities and exclusive events.
