Intel has teamed up with its software partners to launch a customised language interface ‘Darpan' that helps simplify the use and access of personal computer.

The interface, freely downloadable from http://darpan.me, enables the user to access content in five Indian languages — Hindi, Telugu, Marathi, Gujarati and Tamil — apart from English. Darpan is a tool that enables new users to experience the Internet and its endless opportunities, Director, Sales, Intel South Asia, B. Suryanarayanan, said, addressing the media here on Thursday.

“At Intel, we believe that technology has the power to revamp businesses and transform lives,” he said and explained the outreach campaign in Andhra Pradesh to reach out to first time buyers, educating them and making them explore the wonders of personal computer and the Internet.

These had higher performance at lower power, he said and showed the latest Ultrabook, now available in the market, using the latest Intel processors. The Ultrabook devices have the capabilities of today's laptops with tablet-like features in a thin, light and elegant design.

Intel has so far conducted 40 computer and Internet melas, which is a platform for the IT eco-system to extend PC awareness.

and showcase the usage experience around the PC in small towns such as Visakhapatnam, Rajahmundry, Kakinada, Chintalapudi, Guntur, Nellore and Tirupati, he said.
