NEC Computers (UK) introduces the NEC Tablet PC powered by Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition

Leading manufacturer NEC Computers (UK) has extended its award winning range of computing solutions with the Tablet PC. This revolutionary PC weighs less than 1Kg and is only 15mm wide making it the ideal corporate mobile computing solution. Its light and slim design enables access to office networks and emails at anytime, from any location through wireless LAN. NEC plans to introduce the ultimate digital paper offering which incorporates excellent design features and functions.

“NEC continually strives to provide its corporate customers with a complete range of mobile computing products that feature the latest technologies and offer exceptional value for money,” commented Chuck Wearing, product manager of NEC Computers (UK). “The development of the Tablet PC offers a totally new and exciting means of communication, and we are delighted to be a key player in Microsoft’s introduction of the Tablet PC within the European market.”
The NEC Tablet PC enables users to view materials and write memos directly onto the screen, replacing the vast amount of paper used in the traditional office environment and providing reusable digital paper that includes various search functions.
