Toshiba is demonstrating the company's first integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless technologies in its new Tecra 9000 and Portégé 4000 series notebooks at Gitex 2001.

From Toshiba’s successful line of laptops, the new products are aimed to launch the company into the new ‘mobile’ computer market. Both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth antennas are embedded directly into the lid of the notebooks for optimal signal strength, leaving no need for a PC card.

Both technologies will allow users to communicate wirelessly with other computers and wireless devices, like PDAs. Wi-Fi, for instance, allows the sending of wireless email, and Bluetooth allows file transfer, instant messaging and data transfer without the use of an internet connection.

Willem Poterman, general manager of Toshiba’s European marketing division, said, “The new Tecra and Portégé notebooks are the hub of communication for the wireless world. Toshiba designed these products to offer break-through technology, style and functionality.”
