Intel will be offering visitors to this years GITEX event in Dubai the chance to try out its Centrino mobile technology in the Intel Mobility Experience Zone (IMEZ).

IMEZ will be positioned on the mezzanine floor overlooking the Sheikh Rashid Hall and any visitor wishing to experience it will be provided with a half hour free trial using HP's latest Centrino powered notebook, the Nx 7000. Emirates Internet & Multi-Media (EIM) will provide the wireless infrastructure in the IMEZ.

"Mobile computing is one of the hottest topics in IT today, and Intel's Mobile Experience Zone will represent a great opportunity for trade visitors to test-drive Intel Centrino Mobile technology, using state of the art infrastructure and notebook computers. The best way to understand mobility is to actually test and experience its versatility," said Gilbert Lacroix, Intel's president for the Middle East and North Africa.

"Gitex is all about showing the latest technological breakthroughs achieved by Intel and the usage models that these have for our customers. The Intel Mobile Experience Zone is a great example of how cooperation between different companies and providers brings value in the age of convergence," he added.

"We truly believe that the IMEZ will represent a great venue for GITEX visitors to engage in a seamless trial of wireless technology. All those who will experience mobile computing in this zone will get an insight on how this new technology will help them gain freedom and increase productivity and in their daily life," said Maroua Naim, General Manager, EIM.
