HP and Verizon Wireless integrate EV-DO offerings
Posted: 19-Sep-2005 [Source: HP]

[HP and Verizon Wireless to jointly market HP business notebooks and other mobile devices with integrated access to the Verizon Wireless' EV-DO network. Initial offering will be a PC card solution. Early 2006 will see HP notebooks offering integrated Verizon Wireless' EV-DO modules based on Qualcomm chipsets.]

Palo Alto, CA & Bedminster, NJ -- HP and Verizon Wireless today announced plans to bring mobile broadband connectivity to upcoming HP mobile business devices, offering users high-speed wireless data access that extends beyond the reach of today's current patchwork of Wi-Fi hot spots.

As part of the collaboration, the companies will jointly market HP business notebooks and other mobile devices that take advantage of Verizon Wireless' EV-DO (Evolution-Data Optimized) network, the nation's largest high-speed wireless broadband network with data download speeds of 400 kbps to 700 kbps.

HP expects to make this mobile broadband technology available to customers through a PC Card solution this fall. Starting in early 2006, HP plans to begin offering business notebooks with integrated Verizon Wireless EV-DO modules that will be based on Qualcomm chipsets.

"HP is pushing the boundaries of mobile computing with Verizon Wireless," said Ted Clark, senior vice president and general manager, Mobile Computing, HP. "The growing number of Wi-Fi hot spots is helping to drive more pervasive on-the-go computing, but our work with Verizon Wireless takes it a step further. Now, our customers will enjoy high-speed data connectivity in locations where public hotspot connections are unavailable."

The agreement between HP and Verizon Wireless calls for activities such as collaboration on product testing, product development and joint marketing.

"High-speed mobile connectivity will change the way many users stay connected and in doing so will set a new standard of productivity for users on the go," said John Stratton, vice president and chief marketing officer, Verizon Wireless. "Together with HP, we are expanding the range of mobile devices and options for customers who get true office mobility because of the breath and reliability of the Verizon Wireless network."

Verizon Wireless is continually fulfilling its promise to expand its EV-DO wireless broadband network. Today it is available in more than 60 major metropolitan areas and 65 of the nation's busiest airports. Customers who travel outside a BroadbandAccess area with an EV-DO device will seamlessly switch to Verizon Wireless' existing NationalAccess network, based on 1xRTT technology that allows download speeds of 60 kbps to 80 kbps.

HP is planning a technology demonstration of future HP mobile broadband notebooks with EV-DO wireless connectivity at the MobileFocus press showcase event, produced by Pepcom, which will be held at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco on Sept. 27.
