Fujitsu Siemens Computers: ‘Power of mobility’ hits the road

Fujitsu Siemens Computers: ‘Power of mobility’ hits the road

Fujitsu Siemens Computers today announces the launch of its ‘Power of mobility’ project. This sees a series of high-profile individuals, heavily reliant on mobile technology, push Fujitsu Siemens Computers’ mobile products to the absolute limit.

Fujitsu Siemens Computers has one of the broadest mobile product ranges from handhelds to notebooks and tablet PCs, from entry level to the very high end. It is giving its mobile devices to a number of people to use on their travels. They will submit pictures and an online diary about their experience. The project starts with accomplished mountaineer Sorin Nistor and extreme road warrior Richard Bron. They both know how to put a device through its paces, and will be looking for the very best in connectivity, reliability and durability. Twice a week they will record their experiences through regular ‘on-the-road’ reports, available at:

Sorin Nistor has accumulated 40 years of mountaineering experience and taken part in six expeditions. He is taking the LIFEBOOK P7230 on his latest expedition of the Himalayan Gasherbrum 2 – at 8,000 metres it’s the 13th largest mountain in the world. He will be testing the notebook’s embedded connectivity and integrated video camera in some punishing mountain conditions, including ice, snow, high winds and high temperatures.

Richard Bron is CEO of digital media company Blueprint Digital. His customers include Hollywood movie producers, and some of the world’s largest retailers and recording artists including Robbie Williams. In a typical month he’ll cross three continents, so connectivity is crucial for keeping in touch with customers and associates around the globe, as well as his family in London. Richard is trialling the LIFEBOOK T4215 convertible notebook with integrated UMTS and the Pocket LOOX N110 mobile navigator.

Louis Jouanny, Head of Mobility Marketing at Fujitsu Siemens Computers said: “No other vendor on the market can match the diversity, design and depth of our mobility offering. Our broad portfolio of devices with embedded UMTS meets today’s growing need for ubiquitous connectivity, and we pride ourselves on having a mobile device for every scenario. ‘Power of mobility’ is an innovative and exciting way to prove the capabilities and flexibility of our products, by giving them to the most demanding type of mobile user. We will continue to deliver leading-edge technology which fits the needs of road warriors and people who demand highest performance and connectivity whilst on the move.”
