Tuesday, 03 October 2006

As of today, laptop users can benefit from the Vodafone UMTS broadband network without the need of a separate datacard. With the launch of Vodafone's UMTS broadband service yesterday, the current notebooks ThinkPad T60 and X60 from Lenovo with exclusive built-in connectivity from Vodafone, are the first working notebooks on the Dutch market offering built-in UMTS broadband.

With Vodafone's simcard already built in and the Connection Manager software preloaded, one phone call to Vodafone's Customer Management will activate the simcard and connect the customer to the internet with a single click, out of the box.

Vodafone has also signed exclusive contracts with other global brands for built-in UMTS broadband connectivity, covering up to 60% of the notebook market in the Netherlands.

Guy Laurence, CEO Vodafone Netherlands: "Our collaboration with Lenovo and other global brands is yet again an example of our market leadership in offering mobile solutions to our customers. Built-in UMTS broadband offers customers an easy way to accessing office data and the internet on the move. Combined with the quality of service and data speeds this will appeal to even the most demanding users".

Hans van den Broek, CEO Lenovo Benelux: "Teaming with Vodafone provides our customers with a unique proposition. Combining our innovative technology with that of Vodafone allows our customers to access their data anywhere at any time and most importantly with a unique user experience in the ease of connecting."
