MWC 09: Orange and HP's mobile broadband tag team
Mobile giant Orange and computing leader HP have joined forces to distribute connectivity-happy notebooks.
The three-year, pan-European collaboration will add weight to the 100 million mobile broadband connections already counted as part of the four billion figure. As part of the deal, announced at Mobile World Congress both companies co-distribute notebooks and HP Minis with either mobile or fixed broadband connectivity.
"The demand for mobile broadband is a global phenomenon. Adding a select range of HP Notebooks and Minis to our successful portfolio of connected offers is just the kick-off phase," said Olaf Swantee, senior enterprise vice president of Orange's communications services, in a statement.
"Together, we will define new ways to bring services to customers, from co-marketing activities through to distribution, supply chain and care, reinforcing our commitment to make it easy for everyone to access the internet and their content, whenever and wherever they want."
The Compaq Mini 700 is one of the new options available in the UK. Customers can benefit from this internet-connected notebook for just 30 a month.
