HP Notebooks Connect to Verizon 4G LTE NetworkBy Nathan Eddy | Posted 2011-01-10 Email Print
HP and Verizon team up to offer two notebooks with connectivity to Verizon's 4G LTE wireless network.
Technology giant Hewlett-Packard and network operator Verizon Wireless announced that the HP Pavilion dm1-3010nr and Compaq CQ10-688nr notebook PCs can connect to Verizon's 4G LTE mobile broadband network.
The companies said customers can expect download speeds of 5M to 12M bps and
upload speeds of 2M to 5M bps in 4G mobile broadband coverage areas. The HP
Pavilion dm1-3010nr also allows customers to stream high-definition (HD)
content, play games, video chat, and download music, photos and videos at much
faster download speeds.
Measuring less than 1 inch thin, the 11.6-inch HP Pavilion dm1-3010nr includes HP CoolSense Technology, which combines hardware and cooling software for a notebook that feels noticeably cooler. Customers can watch HD content in 1080p, while the dm1-3010nr also includes the latest Vision Technology from AMD—powered by an AMD Fusion Accelerated Processing Unit, which integrates a Microsoft DirectX 11-capable graphics processing unit into the main processor. The notebook also features a full-size, island-style keyboard, a multiformat digital media card reader, an HDMI port, Dolby Advanced Audio, and GPS for mapping and navigation.
"We're excited to offer the first notebook PC and mini for Verizon Wireless' 4G LTE network," said Todd Achilles, vice president of North America service providers for HP's personal systems group. "Through our collaboration, customers will experience true mobile computing via compact, stylish PCs and blazing speed."
Less than 1 inch thick and with a 10.1-inch diagonal anti-glare widescreen LED display, the Compaq CQ10-688nr notebook features an Intel Atom N455 processor, a six-cell in-line battery providing up to 8.5 hours of battery life, a multiformat digital media card reader, a Web cam, and multiple connectivity options with WLAN and Verizon's 4G LTE wireless network. Both the dm1-3010nr and the CQ10-688nr can be turned into mobile hot spots and allow other WiFi-enabled devices to connect with the integrated Internet Connection Sharing application.
"The HP Pavilion dm1-3010nr notebook PC and the Compaq CQ10-688nr provide our customers the reliability they've come to expect from our network combined with our new 4G LTE speeds—all within compact, yet extremely powerful computers," said Marni Walden, vice president and chief marketing officer for Verizon Wireless. "As the first notebook PCs to use the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network, they demonstrate our commitment to bringing our customers a wide breadth of devices to suit their mobile needs."
