ASUS showcases seamless mobility concept at MWC 2011
Taiwanese company ASUS also has an appearance at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. Aside from the location-based service (LBS) smartphone, Eee Pad MeMO, Eee Pad Transformer and Eee Pad Slider devices, ASUS has also unveiled their cloud-based services, which formed the "seamless mobility" concept.
ASUS has showcased products and technologies that form part of its "seamless mobility" concept at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Users get to experience ASUS mobile products including the Eee Pad MeMO, Eee Pad Transformer, Eee Pad Slider and location-based service (LBS) smartphones, and learn more about ASUS’ cloud-based services.
The ASUS Seamless Mobility concept ensures users have complete access to their data wherever they are. This ranges from using a smartphone to email, working on their notebook in the office or watching videos at home on the tablet computer.
Cloud Devices for Every Need
ASUS has unveiled a wide range of notebook PCs at CES 2011 in Las Vegas last month, the Eee PC netbooks, smartphones and new range of tablet computers.
The Eee Pad Slider, Eee Pad Transformer, Eee Pad MeMO and Eee Slate EP121 are available with three screen sizes, and a choice of either Google Android or Windows 7 Home Premium operating systems.
The Eee Pad and Eee Slate tablets claim to deliver full multimedia experience with high definition (HD) video, broad connectivity options and the widest range of media compatibility with standards like Adobe Flash. Capacitive touchscreens are standard throughout, as is stylus input and support for external HDMI displays.
Location-Aware Smartphone Services
The ASUS ‘seamless mobility’ concept extends to pocket-size devices too, and there are a number of ASUS smartphones at MWC. Powered by Google Android, the models all include location-aware services that help users connect with the wider world when they’re on the move with intuitive bespoke user interfaces.
Smart Cloud Storage for Every Device
ASUS will also demonstrate its range of cloud-based services at MWC. This includes ASUS Webstorage that offers automatic data backup, easy access to personal data from any location and instant file sharing. Webstorage adds to the portability and flexibility of user data, freeing consumers from the constraints of physical hard drives, while providing robust privacy and security measures.
ASUS Webstorage makes massive amounts of online storage available, which can then be accessed from any internet-connected device — smartphone, notebook, netbook, tablets such as the ASUS Eee Pad range and even a desktop PC.
Entertainment is also part of ASUS’ cloud-based service line-up - the @VIBE portal offers a huge range of online multimedia and educational content, or the MEar music streaming service.
