Yen-Shyang Hwang, Taipei; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Friday 12 February 2010]
Acer has introduced a 13.3-inch ultra-thin notebook with built-in WiMAX module, the Aspire 3810TG-732G64i, and will cooperate with Vmax Telecom to bundle sales in Taiwan.
Acer will mainly push the notebook in Taipei City since the city already has over 200 WiMAX base stations, covering 85% of the city and will advance toward 95% in the future, according to Scott Lin, president of Acer Taiwan.
Vendors, including Acer, Asustek Computer, MSI and Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS), have all launched WiMAX-ready notebooks, mainly for sale in North America and Russia.
