Fujitsu Siemens Computers has been singled out by the GSM Association (GSMA) as having “the best overall response and commitment to mass-market mobile broadband computing”.
The accolade is part of the GSMA’s Mobile Broadband Notebook competition designed to identify the best manufacturers and devices to serve the emerging market for mobile broadband. Judges at the GSMA highlighted Fujitsu Siemens Computers’ broad portfolio of 3G+ (HSUPA/HSDPA) embedded notebooks as showing clear “dedication” to high-speed mobile computing.
Fujitsu Siemens Computers offers a range of notebooks with secure embedded HSDPA/HSUPA connectivity – from entry level through to high-end ultra-portables. HSDPA/HSUPA delivers high-speed broadband access to those on the move. It makes realtime interactive services, such as video conferencing, IP telephony, mobile gaming and the rapid exchange of large email attachments, a reality over wireless networks.
A fully-embedded solution means customers do not have to worry about external cards or USB modems or installing and configuring software. It provides also better communication capability as well as improved battery life over an external modem solution.
Rob Conway, CEO of the GSMA, says: “Our Mobile Broadband Notebook competition is one of many initiatives designed to help consumers make better-informed choices when purchasing Mobile Broadband notebooks so they can benefit from an improved ‘out-of-the-box’ experience.
"Our steering committee commended Fujitsu Siemens Computers’ range of embedded HSUPA/HSDPA notebooks for anyone looking to make their first foray into high-speed Mobile Broadband computing.”
Andreas Thimmel, senior vice-president: volume business at Fujitsu Siemens Computers, adds: “Mobility is at the heart of Fujitsu Siemens Computers’ business, accounting for just under a third of our overall revenue. An ongoing commitment to ensure our customers are the first to benefit from the latest technologies has been instrumental to this success.
"Our range of notebooks with secure built-in HSDPA/HSUPA connectivity now makes it easy for everyone – whatever their needs – to take advantage of high-speed broadband on the move.”
