HP has unveiled an all-in-one thin client capable of being powered by an Ethernet cable. HP claims the t410 AiO is the first all-in-one thin client that supports the 802.3at Type 1 Power over Ethernet (PoE) standard, which means it is capable of drawing its power from a network connection.
Although the thin client can run off standard AC power using a DC adapter, it can also be powered by its Gigabit Ethernet port (which drops to 10/100 when using PoE). It draws just 13 Watts of power.
The HP t410 AiO thin client runs a Texas Instruments TMS320DM8148 processor, which is a 1Ghz, single core system-on-a-chip processor based on ARM's Cortex-A8 architecture. It also has 1GB of DDR3 RAM and 2GB of flash memory.
The client has an integrated 18.5-inch LED backlit monitor with a resolution of 1366x768 pixels and built-in stereo speakers, and weighs just 3.65kg. It also has four USB 2.0 ports and headphone and Ethernet jacks, and HP bundles it with a keyboard and mouse.
The t410 is part of HP's range of Smart Zero Clients and supports XenDesktop, Windows RDP, VMware View, Citrix ICA 12 and Teradici PCoIP.
HP has yet to confirm when the t410, which was on display at the HP Global Influencer Forum in Shanghai, will be available.
