Olive Telecommunication, Tata Teleservices, launch India's first 3G embedded netbook

NEW DELHI, INDIA: Olive Telecommunication, the parent company of Haier Mobile and Tata Teleservices Limited (TTSL), the country’s fastest-growing dual-technology telecom service provider, today announced the launch of India’s first netbook embedded with High-Speed Internet Access for mobile Internet connectivity and broadband access.

The Netbook X107H, powered by Qualcomm’s QSC 6085 chipset, will leverage the capabilities of HSIA technology on TTSL’s network to enable users with ‘Anywhere, Anytime’ broadband connectivity and help them access advanced data applications and services on the move.

The Netbook has a 1.6-GHz processor, 1-GB DDR memory and 160-GB 2.5” HDD storage. The Netbook comes with attractive payment options and will be available at Tata Indicom stores and other retail outlets across the country.

Arun Khanna, Chairman, Olive Telecommunication, said: "I am very grateful for the opportunity to be a first mover in a space that will surely heat up in the near future, and thank our technology partner Qualcomm as well as telecom partner TTSL for all their support.

"The Netbook, bundled with Tata Teleservices’ data packages, will bring to the consumer the convenience of connectivity ‘Anytime, Anywhere’. We look forward to surprising the Indian consumer with data-enabling devices that will make lives easier and empower greater numbers of Indians to connect to the Net conveniently. TTSL has been a partner since our inception in the telecom sector and we are proud to be associated with them in this new initiative too."

The netbook is being exclusively offered on India’s best wireless broadband service, Photon Plus by Tata Teleservices.

"The Olive Netbook powered by Tata Photon Plus heralds a new era in versatile computing access, and is in keeping with TTSL’s endeavor to provide affordable and ubiquitously accessible high-speed Internet access,” Anil Sardana, MD, Tata Teleservices, said.

"The unique advantages of our high-speed Internet access service get compounded by the feature-rich and attractively-priced Netbook, which will be on offer with an exclusive range of tariff offerings, designed to bring the best of both worlds to the market," he added.

"We congratulate Olive Telecommunication and Tata Teleservices for launching India’s first 3G-embedded Netbook. Computing and wireless are fast converging to enable a compelling mobile broadband experience for consumers worldwide,” Ms Peggy Johnson, Executive Vice-President of the Americas and India, Qualcomm, said.

"We are pleased to collaborate with our partners to bring to the Indian market an innovative solution that offers a world-class computing experience and ubiquitous broadband connectivity."
