Ericsson, the Swedish mobile phone giant, will sport not only it's new Bluetooth headset in Paramount Pictures Tomb Raider movie, but will unveil it's new H610 Web Tablet, a wireless Webpad featuring a touch-screen colour matrix display utilising the Bluetooth Personal Area Network (PAN) and consolidating several communication devices into one portable console.

"The Web tablet, which was shown in prototype form at the CeBIT Computer Faire in Germany last February, is a Red Hat Linux-driven wireless colour screen device that will ship later this year. The device is billed as a cordless communication centre for the home, effectively a combination cordless telephone, answering machine, address book, message centre, and Internet appliance, all in one.

"The H610 is billed as a wireless Webpad that features a colour LCD (liquid crystal display) touch-screen with integral cordless speakerphone, which communicates with a small base station that plugs into a regular phone line. Once enabled, the device allows users to surf the Web, check their e-mail and exchange multimedia files across the Net - wirelessly. "The key to the device's portability is its support for the Bluetooth personal area network (PAN), a 2.4 gigahertz (GHz) short-range wireless network."

Mobile Computer also suggest that Opera Software (www.opera.com) will develop the Linux based browser software that will allow H610 users to seamlessly surf the web. Gizmo-laden Angelina Jolie will be premiering Ericsson's new technology across the U.S. when Tomb Raider debuts June 15th.
