"NCR announced two all-in-one POS (point of sale) systems that run Novell's SUSE Linux for Point of Service. The RealPOS 25 and RealPOS 50 include integral touchscreen displays and can be placed on a counter, pole, bracket, or wall.

"NCR announced its RealPOS 25 and RealPOS 50 in conjunction with this week's National Retail Federation show in New York. At the time of writing, the company still hadn't responded to our request for hardware details, but the new devices (left) appear to be all-in-one versions of the RealPOS40 and RealPOS 60 announced last July.

"The company's release said only that the RealPOS 25 runs fanlessly, delivering "exceptional energy efficiency," while the RealPOS 50 includes a "powerful and energy-efficient processor to run the latest graphical touch-based applications." The systems include an integral touchscreen (size unspecified) that allows them to function as either POS systems or self-service kiosks, according to NCR."
