There's one thing true about life at work, at home or about: Connections are everything. Whether you need to connect to information, entertainment or other people, HP has what you need to make the connections that count — and from more places.

New HP mobility products, solutions and services help bridge the gap between work time, play time and go time as you connect to what's important to you quickly, easily and more reliably — for an experience that's yours for the taking.

Connect at the speed of business

Your business demands speed, convenience and more security to help keep you productive and competitive. HP delivers all that and more with a range of new mobile products, solutions and services to make the right connections — from handhelds and ultra light notebooks to high-performance mobile workstations. End-User Workplace Solutions for the enterprise can also help your workforce connect, communicate and collaborate easier to get vital work done faster and in more places.

Ease into work. Enhance productivity on the go by leveraging HP Broadband Wireless technologies.(2),(3) With video and web conferencing, video-enhanced instant messaging and VoIP,(4) it's also easier to make the connections you need. With new HP QuickLook, available on all new HP business notebook PCs running Windows Vista,(1) you can access your e-mail, calendar, task and contact information from off, standby or hibernation modes with a single button in as little as ten seconds.(5)

Get more security and reliability inside and out. Experience the added security features of Intel® Centrino® Pro processor technology, featuring the new Intel® Core™ 2 Duo(6) Processors. HP ProtectTools offers a portfolio of security technologies and features for HP client solutions to protect devices, data and networks. For example, if your notebook or hard drive is ever lost or stolen, Drive Encryption for HP ProtectTools helps to safeguard your information.

In fact, Full Volume Encryption is now included as a standard feature on most HP business notebooks. This feature encrypts the hard drive to help prevent unauthorized access to the operating system, files, applications and data. Further, HP 3D DriveGuard quickly notifies system software of any sudden movement and helps protect data by parking the hard drive prior to a shock event, bump or drop.

These drive protections are part of HP Professional Innovations, which make working on the go easier, more secure and more reliable. Other innovations include HP DuraFinish, which makes your keyboard more resistant to wear, and HP DuraKeys to help protect the keys from your busy fingertips. In fact, independent tests show HP DuraKeys to be 50 times more resistant to wear than those on competitive notebooks.(7)

Take a new twist on mobility. The new HP Compaq 2710p Business Notebook PC is all about productivity, with a twist. As our most adaptable notebook system, it converts from an ultra-light notebook to an ultra-slim tablet with a simple twist of the screen.

» HP iPAQ Voice Messenger
» Notebook accessories: From webcams and headphones to the latest in mice, it's all nice.

Dual-microphone array, an optional integrated camera and the latest wireless technologies(2),(3) make it perfect for video and web conferencing, video-enhanced instant messaging and VoIP.(4) (Available July 2007.)

Speak your mind for hours. The HP iPAQ Voice Messenger(8) is small in size, yet big on functionality. Great for busy business professionals in any size company, it combines the mobility of a cell phone,(9) the capability of a handheld organizer, an e-mail device and the power of an office phone system. In addition, you can increase productivity and save money by using a single device for both the office and the road with Mobile IP Telephony Services.

Simplify network and device management. The HP ProCurve Networking Adaptive EDGE Architecture™ provides a unified, centrally managed solution for more secure, mobile, multi-service networks. Fast client roaming, increased resiliency and high availability work together to help mobile enterprise workers access appropriate information and remain productive.

For small and midsized businesses, new HP ProCurve 1400 and 1700 switches make network setup easier, simplify management and come with a lifetime warranty.

To reduce the support burden on IT staff and help lower mobility costs, take advantage of the new HP Enterprise Mobility Suite, mobile device management software for HP iPAQ devices running Windows Mobile 5.0 and 6.0.

With this solution, many setup and management tasks can be done more easily and over the air, including configuration, application management, diagnostics and repair. To help keep sensitive data protected, you can also lock devices and wipe device memory remotely.

Further, new offerings within HP's End User Workplace Solutions help maximize workforce productivity. For example, new virtual collaboration solutions help employees stay connected from more places while at work, at home, or on the go.

Connect to virtually everything you love at home or away

HP has new products to fit your budget and reflect your lifestyle. Choose from a full range of HP notebooks with the right combination of power, features and price for digital entertainment and a stylish mobility that's all your own.

Want to make more connections with the people you love? Integrated web cams(10) can make live video chat with friends and family easy and fun. Invite them over to share your favorite DVDs, music, photos, videos and games — even throw an impromptu karaoke party — at the touch of a button with HP QuickPlay.

Want a more moving entertainment experience? Move around with wireless connections to your other computers or media.(11),(12) To help you interact with other devices, such as the HP Media Vault, there are software updates and driver downloads available on the website or via HP Advisor, pre-installed on HP notebook PCs running Windows Vista.(1)

Now, HP is redefining the home PC experience with a brand new category of notebooks featuring exceptionally large, high-performance displays for the digital entertainment enthusiast.

Big entertainment with style and performance. The HP Pavilion HDX Entertainment Series Notebook PC is a home theater, notebook PC and performance-class desktop computer — all combined into a sleek, elegant, artistic design. Play games, listen to music, show videos or photos, and access PC applications — all at blazing speeds. The 20.1" diagonal HDX Ultra Brightview display delivers brightness, contrast ratio and color depth that's hard to beat for high-resolution viewing and brilliant picture quality.

HDX Integrated Audio delivers outstanding stereo sound with four discrete speakers and the integrated HP Triple Bass Reflex Subwoofer. Further, the HDX integrated audio processor supports the latest external 7.1 analog audio speaker solutions, capable of delivering an amazing surround-sound experience.

Completing the home theater experience, the integrated HDTV tuner(12) allows you to watch, pause and record live TV. It supports both the ATSC Digital formats to receive broadcast HDTV transmissions and NTSC Analog TV formats for access to cable or satellite TV programming.
