"In 1999, fat clients accounted for nearly 90% of the $73.2 billion market in 1999 for web-enabling devices (including PCs) according to Semico, an IT market research firm. That figure is expected to drop to 44% by 2004 - fat clients will be rapidly overtaken by the thin clients built into information appliances such as set-top boxes, web consoles, Internet terminals, smart phones, web phones, hand-held browsers, and PDAs."

"Access Co., Ltd. of Tokyo, Japan, established in 1984, is a world market leader in providing innovative software solutions for information appliance manufacturers. Access handles all aspects of software design, research and development, custom engineering and licensing of original embedded software for producers of information appliances on a very wide range of hardware platforms."

"In October 2000, Access Co., Ltd and Coventive Technologies announced a joint solution that targets the surging information appliance market. The partnership will gear to target the IA manufacturers in Asia for hand-held browsers, PDAs, web phones, set-top boxes and many other information appliances. With Access's micro-browser technology and Coventive's embedded Linux expertise along with its strong presence in the Asia Pacific, IA manufacturers can expect faster time-to-market for new product launches."
