HP Launches Compaq nc6140 Laptop with Built-in CDMA EV-DO
HP has 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, over the cellular network.

The notebook features integrated dual-antennas and pre-installed software to help establish a 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."

The EV-DO network offers download speeds of 400 to 700 kbps. The notebook also incorporates the QUALCOMM MSM6500 CDMA2000 1xEV-DO high-speed wireless chipset.

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 such as HP ProtectTools Security Manager that 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.

Starting at a weight of 6 pounds (2.7 kg), the nc6140 has a 15-inch, wide viewing angle display, a full-sized keyboard and scroll zone within the recessed touchpad. 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 now with a starting price of US$1,399. Customers with any monthly Verizon Wireless voice plan can receive unlimited BroadbandAccess for an additional US$59.99 monthly access. For non-voice customers, BroadbandAccess is available for US$79.99 monthly access.
