The device is expected to be a sub-£600 Windows-based machine and will compete with Network Computers such as Sun's much-hyped JavaStation, which will be announced tomorrow. Microsoft's partners are expected to include Hewlett-Packard which has played a large role in pushing for the new computer.

Microsoft said an announcement was imminent, but Hewlett-Packard declined to comment.
