SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Endless, creator of the revolutionary Endless computer and operating system, today announced that it's now shipping the company's popular Endless Mini computer, the world's first fully functioning desktop PC priced at $79. Unveiled at last month's Consumer Electronic Show to rave reviews, what sets the Endless Mini apart is its elegant design, a fun and easy to use graphical interface as well as its ability to access online content, even if an internet connection is unavailable. 

"There's a digital gap for 5 billion people who live without the benefits of today's connected world because they simply lack access to advanced PC technologies that many in developed nations take for granted," said Matt Dalio, CEO and Chief Product Officer at Endless. "The Endless Mini was designed to connect everyone in the world that has never had a PC and get them up and running within minutes. As the Endless Mini becomes part of people's lives, you'll quickly see new businesses, technologies and medicines come to market as a new generation are finally given the opportunity to reach their true potential."

The Endless MIni is available today in two different models online at www.endlessm.com as well as at retail outlets across Guatemala. Key features of the Endless Mini include:

  • Affordable: Built by the best engineering talent in the world, Endless Mini is the most affordable, fully functioning and elegantly designed desktop computer, starting at $79.
  • Storage: Available in two different sizes, storage options include 24GB and 32GB.
  • Fast and simple: Powered by an ARM® Cortex-A processor, Endless Mini is super-fast and easy-to-use with an interface designed to mirror a mobile experience.
  • Safe: Built with Linux, the Endless OS is one of the safest operating systems in the world. Never worry about anti-virus software again.
  • Lots of Apps: Preloaded with over 100 applications, the Endless Mini is ready to use the moment you turn it on. Applications include word processing, presentations, spreadsheets, games, a full encyclopedia from Wikipedia and Khan Academy educational lectures for math, science, and more.

Endless also announced it has closed a new round of financing from both existing and new investors. The new funding will be used to expand the company's marketing, sales and development operations both in the U.S. as well as in Latin America, the Middle East and Asia.

"We're pleased that our investors have confidence in our vision as we continue to bring everyone into the information age," said Matt Dalio. "In 2016, our team will focus on developing a more robust content ecosystem for our users, adding even more to our existing suite of applications which include word processing, presentations, spreadsheets, games, and Khan Academy educational lectures as well as the development of new hardware technologies and market expansion."

Endless has seen major growth year-over-year and will continue to further deepen its global footprint in 2016.  Since launching last Spring, Endless has expanded operations, announced a number of strategic international hires in Mexico, Latin America and China and now employs over 75 people. Additionally, Endless Mini was honored as a recipient of the 2016 CES' Best in Show award.
