RALEIGH, N.C. — IBM is rolling out its biggest self-service touch-screen kiosk yet.

The IBM Anyplace Kiosk includes a 17-inch screen, bigger than its previous 12- and 15-inch models. The new units also feature improved clarity, the company said.

“Clients around the world have asked for a larger kiosk screen and we’ve responded,” said Christopher Wong, director of marketing and strategy for IBM Retail Store Solutions. “I believe you will see these ultra compact kiosks in more and more environments as people use and seek out self service in a variety of consumer-facing environments.”

The Anytime Kiosks contain a 1.3 GHz processor, infrared touch screen display and the capability to display full-screen video.

IBM will display the new model at the Retail Systems Show in Chicago later this month.
