Cloud Hardware – Webbook

The Vodafone Webbook


The Vodafone Webbook is a netbook-sized (10 inch), Ubuntu-powered laptop which brings simplified, value-added internet access to your South African users & -business.

Running your business in the cloud means that all the heavy lifting will be done by the powerful machines which you deploy your services on and as a result the requirements on your physical hardware for the vast majority of the tasks are much lighter. The webbook does provide for a compelling, mobile and in-the-office computing experience.

Ubuntu is a Linux-based operating system that is a free, fast, easy-to-use, and open source computer programme that was pioneered by Mark Shuttleworth.

Speaking about the Ubuntu software,

Mark Shuttleworth said:

“We are delighted to provide the operating system for the Vodafone Webbook. Ubuntu’s founding principle is to remove the barriers of access to computing for everyone, and products like this give hope of connectivity to people all over the world.”
