The Bing - "no-pain-no-gain"

We have introduced the Cherrypal netbook - the Bing - at the Sundance Film Festival today, Friday 1/16/2009.

First though, today is my Dad's birthday - he would have turned 86 today - Dad, I miss you and will always love you.

The Bing is based on the Intel Atom N270 processor, 10.2" screen, full keyboard and web browsing capabilities, local applications as well as cloud access, brilliant multi-media experience. We are also looking into some other interesting platforms as we speak.

The Bing will also be part of the Green Maraschino initiative.

We will pre-sell the Bing for a very limited time in a combo deal - pay $399 for 2 systems - get the C114 now and the Bing netbook in March. Purpose of this campaign is to create an early adopter community with customers and Brand Angels. Speaking of, all active Brand Angels will get a Bing for free.

We will also launch the "no-pain-no-gain" program. All customers who had to wait for the C114 for more than a week for either delivery or refund will get a free Bing in March as well.

The Bing is the thing, isn't it?
