The Linux-based instant-on operating system for fast access to the Web and chat adds more functions in version 2.0.

Splashtop's maker DeviceVM makes sure that its quick launch system contained in BIOS and adopted by main board producers has new support for touchscreens and UMTS in its newest release. As announced at the CES in Las Vegas, DeviceVM is also partnering with Lenovo, which is already using the system, implemented as Lenovo QuickStart in its new Ideapad S10-3t device, a netbook with touchscreen.

Splashtop has the advantage of launching in just a few seconds an Internet access environment over DSL, Wi-Fi and now UMTS. Version 2.0 provides a new startscreen that combines users' favorite Web applications, which next to mail and the usual social websites can include Skype and Music Player, among others.
