Toshiba demos Satellite T130 with embedded LTE 4G
Toshiba at the Mobile World Congress show this week showed off its Satellite T130 notebook PC with an integrated 4G LTE network module from Sony Ericsson. During demonstrations the PC-maker held at its booth, data download speeds of up to 16Mbps. LTE can technically provide peak download speeds of up to 100Mbps. This is significant as the PC is one of the first few with the high-speed connection option.
Otherwise, the 13.3-inch notebook has 1366x768 resolution, a Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR module and integrated Wi-Fi. Available processors include four different Intel Pentium ULV chips, all rated at the same 1.3GHz clock speeds. RAM can be optioned up to 8GB, while hard drive sizes peak at 500GB. Its six-cell battery is rated at 11 hours of operation, and the system weighs less than 4lbs.
Samsung also recently showed off the first netbook with an integrated LTE chip, with its 10-inch N150.
Despite the sneak peek, Toshiba has not revealed pricing or shipping dates for the Satellite T130 with the embedded LTE communications. [via NotebookItalia]
