LG 'will persist' with Smart Display, even after Microsoft drops it

SarsSmarz writes "The attempt to prove that a dumb terminal can exist without multiple logons has come to an end."

The Smart Display, a year old, will not make it to 2.0 - Microsoft has told the unfortunate manufacturers who partnered with it in the doomed venture.
The idea of a flat panel display which you could pick up and carry around the house sounded like a brilliant idea when it was first mooted, since all
it needed was a (presumably, cheap) Windows CE processor and a wireless link. At the time it was not quite as obvious as it is now that it was a dead
duck.
