STD commit to Simtec USBBy Chris Williams. Published: 9th Apr 2003, 18:30:56 | Permalink | Printable
Promised drivers, price reductionsStuart Tyrrell Developments have this afternoon announced price reductions on their USB kit, bringing the product range in line with their recent 89 quid theme. We're not usually interested in price lists but we gather STD are committing themselves to the Simtec USB solution, adding that they've been in "heated negotiation with Simtec" in order to sell their USB card at a lower price plus netted a number of licensing deals with some unnamed third parties.
"Stuart Tyrrell Developments are committed to commissioning drivers for an increasing range of USB devices", STD state in their emailed press release. "We have a wide range of devices due for release over forthcoming weeks."
USB drivers already exist for keyboards, mice, the Epson 1660 Photo Scanner, wireless network devices and a pen drive with built in MP3 playback. We assume STD's revised prices are aimed at firefighting concerns among the user community that the current RISC OS USB kit is perhaps overpriced. Couple these price reductions with STD's recent USB related noise making and promises to push more and more supported devices our way, it would be nice to comfortably consider that USB is finally rolling into RISC OS town.
Revised STD price list - worth a look at, obviously
