Samsung offers easy wireless computing in new series 7 smart station

Electronics America, a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Corporation, has
launched the latest version of the Series 7 Samsung Smart Station, as well as a
redesigned Series 7 HDTV monitor for a whole-home solution.


The second
generation Series 7 Smart Station (CB750) is a HD monitor and a wireless
docking station. It integrates with mobile devices in addition to notebook PCs,
peripherals, network and AV and provides users with a simple and convenient way
to increase productivity.


Users are
limited to comparatively small screens, touchpads, limited keyboards and
multiple peripheral connections. The new Series 7 Smart Station and Series 7
HDTV monitor solve these problems by providing users with an easy way to reduce
desktop connection clutter and combine the convenience of a laptop or mobile
device with the traditional advantages of a desktop PC. In addition, the
built-in HDTV and WiDi functionality of the Series 7 HDTV monitor streamlines
devices into a single work-play option ideal for smaller spaces,” said Todd
Bouman, vice president of product marketing at Samsung Enterprise Business


Through linking
Android MHL-compatible smartphone, users can take advantage of the Series 7
Smart Station’s new Mobile High Definition Link (MHL) and enjoy content from
their mobile devices directly on the much larger screen.


It also includes
a new Mobile Control feature which allows users to simultaneously connect to a
tablet or smartphone, granting them complete control over their mobile device
via the Series 7 Smart Station’s unified hub interface and a traditional mouse
and keyboard.


Samsung’s new
Series 7 HDTV monitor (TB750) includes HDTV functionality with a built-in TV
tuner and integrated wireless display (WiDi) technology from Intel for added
connectivity to the TB750 as well as integrations with mobile devices like
smartphones and tablets for added versatility.


The Series 7
Smart Station and Series 7 HDTV 750 monitor will be available in March 2012.
Pricing for the Series 7 Smart Station will begin at $549 while pricing for the
Series 7 HDTV monitor will begin at $599.


Last year, Samsung Electronics announced that its mobile handset sales exceeded 300
million units.


In Q3 2011,
Samsung overtook Apple in smartphone sales, according to analyst firm Juniper
Research. 22 percent of 115 million smartphones shipped in Q3 2011 were from
the Korean giant, compared with Apple’s 15 percent.
