Orange and Hewlett Packard have signed a deal which will see more 3G-enabled laptops retail around Europe.

Mobile broadband-ready machines will include both consumer notebooks and HP Minis, with launches earmarked for the UK, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria and Portugal.

According to Olaf Swantee, senior executive vice-president of Orange's communications services, the new agreement will take advantage of 3G broadband's growing popularity.

"The demand for mobile broadband is a global phenomenon," he said. "Adding a select range of HP notebooks and Minis to our successful portfolio of connected offers is just the kick-off phase."

"We will define new ways to bring services to customers, from co-marketing activities through to distribution, supply chain and care, reinforcing our commitment to make it easy for everyone to access the internet and their content, whenever and wherever they want."

Customers opting for the new Compaq Mini 700 will be offered the machine with mobile broadband access for £30 per month.
