Express Gate instant-on Internet and media access coming to most ASUS notebooks next month

Starting in June, we’ll see a bunch of ASUS laptops shipping with the Express Gate instant-on UI. The interface was created by DeviceVM and is called Splashtop, although OEMs can apparently change the name to suit their needs, hence ASUS calling it Express Gate. It’s branded as “a light-weight operating system that allows consumers to use their computers seconds after hitting the power button.”

We’ll see more in early June as Express Gate gets shown off at Computex in Taiwan, but the above video should give you a pretty good idea of how everything works.
