PALO ALTO: After Intel that showed an India specific motherboard last week, it’s the turn of Hewlett-Packard Co to show off new products tailored to the market in India.

The products include a writing tablet that makes it easier to enter characters from two of India's 14 national languages into a computer.

¬ďIf you're in the high technology business, you need to look ahead. The ball keeps moving,¬Ē Dick Lampman, HP's senior vice president of research, said after unveiling the products.

He spoke at a demonstration at HP Labs headquarters that featured technologies designed at HP Labs India, which was established in 2002.

The square tablet, which HP dubbed the Gesture Keyboard, allows a computer user to use a pen like stylus to enter characters in two of India's languages.

The 15-cm-by-15-cm device was introduced in India two weeks ago and costs about $50. HP plans to offer updates so it will eventually serve speakers of additional languages.

¬ďThis is the way we learn to write as children,¬Ē said Ajay Gupta, the director of HP Labs India. ¬ďThere's absolutely no new learning required.¬Ē
