Asus introduces the new R2H Ultra-Mobile PC for the new mobile computing era.
Being a leading provider of high-performance notebook computers, Asus unveiled the latest R2H with built-in high-resolution webcam, incorporated global positioning system (GPS) and biometric fingerprint authentication,
The 7-inch ultra compact R2H is designed to fulfill the increasing need for an all-in-one mobile device that enables professionals to stay connected, productive and secured on the go.
To give business travelers peace of mind, the R2H offers total data protection that meets the evolving security needs with both software and hardware solutions.
The protected computing starts with fingerprint authentication that grants strict access only to the designated owner. For the most accurate reading, the electronic imaging mechanism scans fingerprint pattern from the live layer of the skin , bypassing any common skin surface conditions.
The exclusive ASUS Security Protect Management (ASPM) guards access to the device and network. Users can choose to setup multi-factor authentication requirements for different security levels while enjoying the Single Sign On (SSO) one-time login convenience without compromising security integrity.
The R2H runs on Windows XP Tablet PC Edition with Touch Pack software and ergonomic hardware interface designs. With complete function keys laid out on both sides of the front panel, users enjoy comfortable operation to a full set of control keys, including mouse, scroll buttons, hot keys as well as on-screen keypad.
The feature-rich R2H is packed with computing, multimedia and connectivity functions. Built-in Bluetooth 2.0 EDR ( Enhanced Data Rate), WLAN 802.11 a/b/g and high-resolution webcam offer extensive high-speed connection and wire-free video communication. In addition, satellite GPS provides a comprehensive travel guide that the users no longer need to deal with paper maps or ask for directions. The incorporated GPS antenna with a foldable mechanism allows convenient storage when not in use.
All these features make the R2H a powerful yet ultra-mobile computing system. Although the lack of a keyboard may be considered a minus by some customers, the numerous features and connectivity options can compensate it. No price and availability have been announced by Asus and also no information about R2H’s battery capacity.
