HP Extends Frontier of Wireless Computing with Mobile Broadband Notebook PC

Alliance with Verizon Wireless expands the range of mobility with its wireless wide-area data network at broadband speeds

HP today introduced a mobile broadband notebook that allows users to stay connected at broadband speeds to corporate networks, email and the Internet without being tied to a wireless hotspot.

The HP Compaq nc6140 Notebook PC operates on Verizon Wireless’ Evolution Data Optimized (EV-DO) network, which allows customers to connect at broadband speeds to corporate networks, email and the Internet, even while traveling.

The notebook features integrated dual-antennas and pre-installed software to help establish a convenient and reliable wireless connection via Verizon Wireless’ BroadbandAccess network. HP and Verizon Wireless will jointly market the new business notebook.

“Mobile professionals using HP’s mobile broadband notebook no longer have to limit themselves to airports, hotel lobbies or other public Wi-Fi hotspots,” said Ted Clark, senior vice president and general manager, Mobile Computing, HP. “Our customers can now enjoy extremely fast data connectivity speeds, enabling them to communicate better and be more productive wherever they happen to be.”

HP and Verizon Wireless collaborated on the development of the nc6140 notebook to take advantage of the Verizon Wireless EV-DO network that powers its BroadbandAccess service and offers download speeds of 400 to 700 kbps. The notebook also incorporates the QUALCOMM MSM6500™ CDMA2000® 1xEV-DO high-speed wireless chipset.

“Together, HP and Verizon Wireless provide mobile professionals a robust wireless broadband experience without having to seek out and find public Wi-Fi hotspots in order to connect with email or the Internet,” said John Stratton, chief marketing officer, Verizon Wireless. “The Verizon Wireless BroadbandAccess service and our EV-DO network that supports it provide the advantages of convenience and flexibility.”

In addition to the convenience of its integrated mobile broadband technology complemented by wireless LAN and Bluetooth™ wireless technology, the thin and light HP nc6140 incorporates enhanced security features that help defend a user’s data, applications and network. For example, HP ProtectTools Security Manager allows users to easily manage security solutions using flexible, customizable security layers. The notebook also offers HP Drivelock hard drive protection to protect against unauthorized access to the notebook.

As with other HP business notebooks, the nc6140 is designed to meet the demands of the mobile lifestyle. HP innovations such as the HP Mobile Data Protection System to protect the hard drive from shock, scratch-resistant in-mold lamination and the HP Panel Protection System help protect the nc6140 from the bumps of life on the road.

Starting at a weight of only 6 pounds, the nc6140 has a large, 15-inch, wide viewing angle display, a full-sized keyboard and scroll zone within the recessed touchpad – all of which allow users to feel like they are working at their desks. Expansion capabilities include an optional port replicator that simplifies system management and an optional HP Travel Battery that doubles battery life without compromising functionality.

The HP Compaq nc6140 Notebook PC is available immediately with a starting price of $1,399. (3) Customers with any monthly Verizon Wireless voice plan can receive unlimited BroadbandAccess for an additional $59.99 monthly access. For non-voice customers, BroadbandAccess is available for $79.99 monthly access.
