Packard Bell unveils new product line
Dubai, April 23, 2009
Packard Bell, part of Acer group, today presented its new product line and said that it intends to expand across the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa region.
“Middle East PC users are very style-conscious, and they always want products which seamlessly adhere to their changing lifestyles. We believe the new Packard Bell range of products is not only the broadest and most innovative, it also sets the standard for cool, design-driven technology,” said Emmanuelle Fromont, EMEA vice president of Packard Bell.
Packard Bell’s new product line includes different new versions of netbooks (“dot m” and “dot s”) and notebooks (the brand new EasyNote Butterfly and the fresh new EasyNote TR series), plus nettops (imax mini), desktop (imedia and ixtreme), monitors (Maestro), which were already a great success on the market and have been refreshed and updated.
The new range of Packard Bell notebooks have LED panels, 16:9 aspect ratio, Dolby Sound Room and red capacitive buttons for power saving, backup and touchpad lock. The netbooks have the outstanding qualities of Dolby headphones, an LED panel and multi-gesture touchpad, allowing an easy and intuitive access to a wide variety of applications.
In two versions, dot s (10.1-inch screen) and dot m (11.6-inch), the netbooks have multi-gesture touchpads, Wi-Fi, optional Bluetooth, optional 3G, VGA webcam and Dolby Headphone. The 10.1-inch widescreen dot s will be available starting this week; the 11.6-inch dot m will be available starting week 17. Availability will vary according to country, said a statement.
The new EasyNote Butterfly by Packard Bell is light, 500 grams less than a standard notebook and less than 1-inch thick. With its graceful, elegant, stylish shape evoking the form of the butterfly and the great attention to details, this notebook will win the favour of “in style” people, it said.
EasyNote TR has glossy cover, matt interior, silver coloured touchpad and ramp speaker. With 15.6-inch widescreen and Dolby Sound Room, creating a stunning personal surround-sound listening experience, the EasyNote TR series comes in three different versions: in black with a traditional LCD panel (available by the end of April), plus the already available blue version and an amazing black edge-to-edge version (available beginning of April). – TradeArabia News Service
