Packard Bell tolls for the SOHO mobile market

Packard Bell has launched a full-scale assault on the SOHO mobile market with a new notebook to be sold through Harvey Norman retail outlets.

The Easy Note uses NEC technology and Packard Bell hopes to secure 30 per cent, or 15,000 units, of the home/consumer market in the next few months, according to a statement released by the company.

"The days of mobile computing being a purely business phenomenon are gone," said Farley Bartholomeusz, Packard Bell NEC's CEO.

"There's a strong market niche for computers that can be taken to school, in the car, on holiday, anywhere any member of the family wants it."

The notebook comes with a suite of software including Windows 98, Encarta 98, Internet Explorer 4 and Real Player 5.
