PRO Technology, the UAE’s leading distributor, is glad to announce their establishment as the distributor of PaceBlade Technology’s PaceBook in the Middle East.
PaceBlade’s revolutionary PaceBook is now available in the Middle East, Levant and northern Africa.
“We are very excited to be shipping into the centre of the world’s cutting-edge technology,” said Eric Djie, President of PaceBlade and Chief Designer of the PaceBook. “The flexibility of our 3IN1 system ensures simple, ergonomic and need-driven solutions, and allows us to serve customers and industries that neither a traditional notebook nor a Tablet PC can effectively satisfy today.” An entirely new concept in mobile computing, the PaceBook combines the functions of a notebook, LCD PC and Tablet PC. And unlike notebooks, it can work in portrait mode, an application perfectly suited to reading eBooks or surfing the web.
“We strive to provide people with products that make their leisure and work lives more comfortable, in terms of computing functionality and great design,” added Mr Djie. Working with vertical markets, the PaceBook’s flexible solutions are proving popular with professional industries as diverse as education and construction, and have proved of special interest to the medical community.
“Doctors require more power than a PDA can offer, and their work demands mobility, so a traditional desktop computer is not enough,” notes Mr Djie. “The PaceBook’s touchscreen and variety of data input methods mean they can take notes easily during rounds, and simultaneously access prescription programs or patient record databases, for instance.”
To increase mobility and practicality, the PaceBook can easily be wall mounted, used on tripods, POS devices or in vehicles. It comes in a designer case and can be carried comfortably, thanks to a wide range of standard and customised carry straps. The PaceBook is upgradeable to connect to any wireless environment, including LAN, WAN or cellular.
“We are very pleased to be appointed as the distributors for the region,” Jamal Maraqa, Managing Director of PRO TECHnology, “Our region has always invested in the latest technology and we see a good potential for a product like the PaceBook. We had a great response at GITEX from potential customers from varied vertical segments.”
The PaceBook enters a market that will soon be crowded with competition, but the product stands apart from other similar products on a number of key differentiators. A 12″ screen gives its users 20% more real estate to play with compared to 10″ screen models. The 12″screen also permits users to touch-type directly onto the large virtual keyboard on the touch sensitive screen. “These and many other features like the special web camera, the full range of accessories and long battery life set the PaceBook apart from the competition. The PaceBook is made with a rugged Magnesium Alloy Casing and is particularly suited to the Middle East environment since it is fully sealed and dust particles cannot get into the unit and destroy the system,” said Raj Kulshrestha, Manager, Mobility Division of PRO TECHnology.
