HP unveils new line of portable devices

Las Vegas, NV — Computer technology giant Hewlett Packard unveiled Monday its new line of sleek notebook products that combine ultra-portability with high performance to cater to the ever-growing and more demanding mobile consumer population. In addition, the company also launched the HP DataPass, a pre-paid 3G mobile broadband service available in the U.S. market.

The Palo Alto, CA-based company’s new products and services include:

• The HP ProBook 5330m, which at less than 1-inch thin, features a dual-tone color scheme, brushed aluminum chassis and backlit keyboard and is HP’s first business notebook to offer Beats Audio, which allows listeners to hear music the way the artist intended. This laptop is designed for savvy business professionals.

• The EliteBook, HP’s smallest and lightest portable computer weighing in at only 3.68 pounds, includes a 12.5-inch diagonal high-definition display and high-performance Intel processor and is the only notebook in the industry with an integrated optical drive in this form factor.

• The redesigned HP Mini 210, which sports vibrant new colors, HP Beats Audio and HP QuickWeb 3.0, creating an ideal mobile companion for on-the-go consumers.

• The HP DataPass, a pre-paid 3G mobile broadband service that allows users to purchase wireless broadband data using major mobile carriers in the United States without being tied down by contracts, hotspots and set-up fees.

All products will be available in the United States — and most certainly, the Puerto Rico market — starting later this month.
