Bill Gates will introduce a new PC concept at the WinHEC 2003.

Gates plans to demonstrate an advanced prototype office computer, dubbed "Athens," that Microsoft developed with Hewlett-Packard.
The Athens PC has a built-in telephone linked to Microsoft's productivity applications. When the hardware receives an incoming call, the software automatically pulls up the caller's contact information and photo if the data are stored on the system.
Gates also plans to demonstrate a new scroll wheel and set of buttons for navigating Windows-powered devices with one hand.

Basically Microsoft is repeating the Model the introduced with the TabletPC, where they tell Hardware manufacturers what the features are. Now the try to accelerate the innovation in the PC area.
