It's what every globetrotting manager dreams of: the freedom to shift important strategy conferences from a stuffy office to the beach or poolside whenever the sun is shining. Now Fujitsu Siemens Computers makes this dream come true with the new Lifebook P7230 not only comes with an integrated ConfCamera for videoconferences, it also offers integrated UMTS/HSDPA.

The simple but elegant Lifebook P7230 has a 10.6-inch screen and weighing just 1,25 kilos, it can be added to your bathing gear almost without being noticed. The Lifebook P7230 will be available from April 2007.

The new Lifebook P7230 has been optimized to meet the needs of business people who spend a lot of their time on the road and are looking to accommodate as many functions as possible on a compact, lightweight notebook. To optimise efficiency, they also need notebooks with long battery lifetimes and fast and uncomplicated access to the internet.

The Lifebook P7230 is the smallest and lightest notebook equipped with a modular bay currently on the market. Thanks to the second battery and the integrated Eco Button, the battery lifetime can be extended to approximately one working day. The Eco Button can be used, for example, to deactivate optical drives and simultaneously dim the screen brightness.

Mobile internet access via the Lifebook P7230 is supported by its integrated WLAN and Bluetooth, as well as by UMTS/HSDPA (as of this spring, also planned with UMTS/HSUPA). The built-in camera and the 10.6-inch widescreen with the latest LED background lighting allows for exceptional videoconferencing capabilities.

In addition to outstanding versatility and functionality, the Lifebook P7230 places special emphasis on style ― both for the notebook and for the person carrying it. The black magnesium housing and clear and simple form underscore the compact, elegant design: the whole unit is smaller than a sheet of A4 paper and not even three centimeters in height.

Andrew Tsobanoglou, Product Manager for Professional Products at Fujitsu Siemens Computers comments: "In our company, almost all employees with frequently changing workplaces now have a notebook enabling them to dial into the corporate network wherever they happen to be. Their experiences went into the development of this new notebook. The Lifebook P7230 offers our customers a perfect blend of functionality and design."
