According to a telecommunications and electronics industry source on March 6, both companies plan to sell Samsung Electronics’ ATV series of Windows laptops that contain an assortment of LTE communications modules.
A laptop equipped with LTE modules would enable Internet connections anytime anywhere even in wired local area networks (LAN) or WiFi dead zones so long as LTE cellphones work.
KT plans to introduce Samsung Electronics’ ATIV series of smart PCs by the end of this month. The new product, with a monitor and a keyboard separated from each other, can be used as a tablet PC if necessary.
SK Telecom also determined recently that it would introduce Samsung’s ATIV series of smart PC pro, a higher version. The telecom operator is currently testing network interoperability with a planned launch in April.
The model has all the necessary components needed for high-performance laptops equipped with Intel i5 processor, 4 GB RAM, and solid-state drive (SSD), etc.
Both companies are reportedly negotiating with companies such as HP and LG Electronics to roll out LTE laptops.
