The laptop broadband market has a new player - O2 will now offer Samsung laptops with its mobile broadband deals.
According to the operator, the Samsung NC10 mini-laptop and R510 laptop will be included in a range of three new Pay Monthly mobile broadband packages.
The new laptop bundles will be available in O2 stores from Friday, February 27th, the company has confirmed.
"We all want to be better connected at all times and the substantial and continued growth in the laptop market is symptomatic of this desire," commented O2 chief executive, Ronan Dunne.
He went on: "Laptops are rapidly eroding the desktop PC market and at the same time, the emergence of the mini-laptop has opened up a whole new market for ultra-portable devices - one that is expected to more than double in size in 2009 alone."
O2 has pointed to projections which show laptop sales could reach nine to ten million in 2009.
