Qualcomm’s Gobi2000 Technology to enable 3G in Lenovo ThinkPad Laptops
Qualcomm and Lenovo have recently announced that Lenovo will incorporate Qualcomm's new Gobi2000 technology into upcoming ThinkPad laptops in the X, T and W Series beginning in 2010 to enable global 3G connectivity. The Gobi-equipped laptops will provide business users with extensive wireless broadband access both domestically and internationally by leveraging the wide availability of both EV-DO and HSPA wireless networks around the world.
Businesses deploying ThinkPad laptops with Gobi technology will be able to standardize on a single hardware platform that can be deployed globally. Each region has the flexibility to provision 3G connectivity on an as-needed basis and to their preferred carrier based on the coverage and pricing plans available in their area. If an employee relocates to a different region or is traveling outside the home coverage area, Gobi technology supports the ability to switch carriers without having to swap data cards and/or reinvest in a new laptop, reducing the costs to deploy 3G. Gobi technology also includes an integrated GPS receiver for enabling location-based services such as asset tracking, real-time data protection, geo-fencing and navigation.
Qualcomm's embedded Gobi solutions for laptops and netbooks deliver support for the world's leading 3G technologies as well as for integrated GPS. For more information about Gobi technology, please visit www.gobianywhere.com.
