[Panasonic Toughbook CF-18, CF-20 and CF-73 notebook models are now available with built-in access to Sprint's EV-DO and CDMA 1X networks using the Sierra Wireless EM5625 embedded module.]

Secauus, NJ -- Panasonic Computer Solutions Company today announced that the Panasonic Toughbook fully rugged CF-18 and CF-29 notebook computers, and the semi-rugged CF-73 notebook computer are now available with built-in access to Sprint's EV-DO and CDMA 1X networks. Panasonic, which has been embedding wireless capabilities for six years, was the first notebook vendor to integrate and ship embedded EV-DO laptops on the Sprint network, starting in August 2005. Panasonic is enabling EV-DO connectivity through the embedded Sierra Wireless EM5625 OEM module.

Panasonic's integrated wireless solutions are designed, developed and manufactured with embedded OEM modules and retractable built-in antennas to provide the most advanced performance in the industry. Panasonic Toughbooks are engineered to provide access to all current technologies including CDMA 1x, GSM/GPRS, EDGE and EV-DO. They utilize the Intel Centrino(TM) chipset for seamless connectivity to local networks and can be configured with Bluetooth(TM) technology for connectivity to local printers, headsets and networks.

The fully rugged and durable Panasonic Toughbook CF-18 and CF-29 are designed using MIL-STD-810F environmental testing procedures for drops, shocks, altitude, vibration, and dust, water and extreme temperature resistance. Both models are encased in magnesium alloy and feature a shock-mounted removable hard-drive in a stainless steel case. With one quick swivel, the Toughbook CF-18 transforms from a fully rugged maximum-performance notebook PC to a fully rugged handwriting-friendly tablet PC.

The high-performance Toughbook CF-73 is ideal for mobile professionals and built to withstand the rigors of travel. Its versatile combo drive (DVD-ROM/CD-RW) and large outdoor-readable touchscreen LCD let you work seamlessly in any location and make it perfect for delivering high-impact multimedia presentations.

The dual-band Sierra Wireless EM5625 embedded module provides a powerful, reliable, wireless engine that can be integrated into a wide variety of mobile devices. It offers voice, data, and messaging functionality at typical data speeds of 400-700 kbps, with bursts up to 2.4 Mbps. The EM5625 complies with new European Union directives on RoHS (Restrictions on Hazardous Substances).
