"OnLive Desktop Plus" Introduces World's Fastest Flash Browsing... on iPad

Gigabit-Speed Accelerated Browsing With Full PC Flash Animation and Video Over Any Connection; Gigabit-Speed File and Attachment Upload/Download With Any Cloud Storage or Email Service; Full Microsoft(R) Office Apps and Adobe(R) Reader(R), Delivered Insta

PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/23/12 -- OnLive, Inc., the pioneer of instant-action cloud computing, is pleased to announce the OnLive™ Desktop Plus service, bringing gigabit-speed(1) accelerated browsing with full Adobe® Flash® to devices with the OnLive Desktop App, regardless of the device's local Internet speed and local computing capability, making OnLive Desktop Plus by far the world's fastest mobile browsing experience, if not the fastest consumer browsing experience available on any device. The free OnLive Desktop App, currently available on iPad® -- and coming soon to Android®, PC, Mac®, TVs and monitors -- delivers no-compromise, media-rich, instant-response Windows® applications including Microsoft® Word, Excel® and PowerPoint® software, and as of today, Adobe® Reader® for PDFs, along with 2GB of cloud storage. OnLive Desktop Plus, available for $4.99/month at desktop.onlive.com, provides all OnLive Desktop Standard features plus OnLive's gigabit-speed accelerated browsing experience with full Flash player capability. With OnLive Desktop Plus, the iPad not only becomes 100% Flash compatible, it becomes the world's fastest mobile Flash player.

Running remotely on powerful PCs in the cloud that are connected by Gigabit Ethernet to the Internet, OnLive Desktop Plus utilizes OnLive's patented instant-action cloud gaming technology to deliver a seamless PC application and Web experience, instantly responsive to multi-touch gestures, as well as a full PC on-screen keyboard, handwriting recognition and optional Bluetooth® keyboard.

Regardless of your local connection speed, be it Wi-Fi or 4G LTE, even the most complex Flash websites -- including ones that would take minutes to load over your local connection -- load in seconds, instantly delivering fully interactive animation, video and sound. A 50 megabyte file from cloud storage (e.g., Dropbox) or a 15 megabyte attachment from Web email (e.g., Gmail™, Yahoo!® Mail, etc.) can literally download or upload in less than a second, resulting in an utterly transformative Web experience. And, despite the astounding speed improvement, OnLive Desktop Plus can dramatically reduce Web browsing data usage, since only the top layer of the currently visible part of a website is ever sent over the local connection. Essentially, OnLive Desktop delivers only what you can see or hear at a given moment, potentially reducing data usage by a factor of 10 or more.

"Experiencing a full Flash-enabled Web experience at gigabit speeds on iPad is nothing short of breathtaking, and OnLive Desktop Plus is your ticket to ride," said Steve Perlman, OnLive Founder and CEO. "Combine that with OnLive Desktop's full-featured Microsoft Office and Adobe Reader PC applications and not only do you have the world's fastest mobile browser, but the world's most powerful productivity tools literally at your fingertips."

The free OnLive Desktop app is available for iPad now in the United States desktop.onlive.com/iosapp. Android, smartphone, PC, Mac and monitor/TV support (via the OnLive MicroConsole™ thin client with Bluetooth keyboard/mouse) are coming soon -- with your same OnLive Desktop available by login from any device -- as well as support for the United Kingdom and other countries. OnLive Desktop can be accessed anywhere, on any device, at any screen resolution. Announcements regarding the release of the OnLive Desktop app in the UK Apple App Store will be made shortly.
