Marvell and ZeroDesktop are now working with MiTAC International Corp., CVT
Electronics and Wistron to bring cost-effective Android-based, all-in-one
solutions to the market. These all-in-one solutions will offer a comprehensive
range of cloud services and computing products to meet the demands of today's
cloud for a broad range of business and consumer users in emerging markets as
well as additional household or business devices in developed regions.

The new cloud-based desktop platform, featuring a multi-user login environment
and an integrated virtual file system, delivers a rich multimedia experience
combined with productivity all from a single server, eliminating the need for
investment in multiple PCs and expensive PC maintenance and infrastructure.
The groundbreaking solution is targeted at cost-conscious education systems,
emerging nations, small businesses and consumers.

"Marvell is thrilled to collaborate with ZeroDesktop and our new manufacturer
partners as we advance our mission to deliver low-cost computing devices while
making it easier for small businesses and consumers to gain control of their
digital lives for excellent multi-tasking and entertainment experience" said
Winston Chen, vice president of the Smart Home Business Unit at Marvell
Semiconductor, Inc. "In today's challenging economic environment, this
affordable, sleek all-in-one platform provides an attractive alternative while
giving users a more productive and enjoyable cloud computing experience."

Powered by the Marvell ARMADA 1500 family of HD media SoCs, the virtual
desktop account manager tool provides a seamless all-in-one content management
hub for organizing, accessing, managing and sharing digital content locally,
regardless of where it is stored. As a result, users can regain control of
digital content that is increasingly dispersed across local computers, social
sites, portable storage devices and external storage services.

The Android-based ZeroDesktop Cloud OS also solves many of the challenges
typically faced by users, such as single-tasking user interface, inconsistent
file systems, non-integrated productivity tools, and the lack of secure device
sharing among multiple users. The solution provides an integrated desktop
experience that offers substantial cost savings compared to other low-cost
desktop PC offerings. What's more, the virtual web desktop platform provides
new opportunities for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), original design
manufacturers (ODMs) and service providers to provide a turnkey cloud service
solution to their subscribers and end-users.

"Adding these new partnerships with leading manufacturers bolsters our
existing relationship with Marvell and provides ZeroDesktop with tremendous
momentum as we fast track our solution into the marketplace," said Young Song,
CEO of ZeroDesktop. "We're excited to work with Marvell and our new partners
to extend benefits such as cost savings; reduced storage, server and bandwidth
requirements; and the ability to enable thousands of users to access their
content and enjoy a unique computing experience."

Powerful, energy-efficient, ultra-scalable and affordable, the ARMADA 1500
Series SoC platform contains Marvell's highest-performing ARM v7-compatible
PJ4B SMP super-scalar dual-core CPU. The chip is designed to enable PC-like
processing power to support Web browsing with support for Flash and other key
technologies – with the aid of more than 6,000 Dhrystone MIPS of computing
horsepower, FPU v3.0, 512KB of L2 cache and NEON. With advanced,
cellphone-like power management, the platform is also incredibly
energy-efficient.

The ARMADA 1500 contains Marvell's award-winning Qdeo® video processing for
state-of-the-art HD and 3-D video, including scaling, noise reduction,
de-interlacing, low bit-rate Internet video enhancement and FRC, and
color/contrast enhancement. The chip offers VMeta™, a multi-format video
decoder that can decode up to two simultaneous 1080p streams as well as a host
of other video formats and containers.
