LIFEBOOK Q2010: first 3G/UMTS embedded notebook now available


Fujitsu Siemens Computers is offering unlimited Internet access in cooperation with major mobile telecommunications providers

Munich , Jun 19, 2006, Fujitsu Siemens Computers, the leading European IT provider, is announcing the availability of the first 3G/UMTS embedded notebook, the sophisticated and elegant LIFEBOOK Q2010. It’s the ultimate executive notebook, giving users in Europe the convenience and dependability of a broad base of mobile network operators on the 3G/UMTS network via cooperation with: T-Mobile in Germany and Austria, mobilkom austria in Austria, Orange in France, Telefonica in Spain, Swisscom in Switzerland, Telenor in Norway, Elisa in Finland, 3 in Sweden and in a number of Vodafone markets.

Fujitsu Siemens Computers has already started shipping the LIFEBOOK Q2010, which is available through the company’s IT reseller channel as well as from some of the UMTS network providers. The embedded UMTS system integrates completely the UMTS communication module and antenna which are up to now existing as add-on cards which stick out of the computer. The great advantage: no more clutter with external devices. Ease-of-use is highlighted in all Fujitsu Siemens Computers UMTS enabled devices: the SIM card can as easily be exchanged as in a normal mobile phone. Built-in access to online information and applications at broadband and the UTMS capability allows executives to work productively without spending valuable time searching for hotspots.

“We are very proud to be the first company to ship an embedded 3G/UMTS mobility solution to the market. Again we have demonstrated our leadership in integrating the latest mobile technology,” said Peter Esser, Executive Vice President Volume Products & Supply Operations at Fujitsu Siemens Computers. “Our cooperation with major 3G/UMTS providers gives users the greatest comfort and flexibility when connecting to the internet. They have a single source for the complete system.”
