Previously known as Makcik PC and now called Jenii or Dollah made its debut at Telekom Malaysia’s booth. Meant to bridge the gap between the PC literate and illiterate, it uses touch screen as the main UI while giving you an option to hook on to a keyboard. Able to run on both Microsoft Windows XP and a customized OS (I guess is Linux)


WiMAX seems to be the buzz nowadays and Packet 1 Solutions is showcasing some of their WiMAX products. P1 also operating the free WiFi service for the city of Kuala Lumpur.
