Not magic. technology! The old, worn-out board from the late 1990s fits perfectly into the new product as a result of the partnership between Lenovo, IBM's heir in the production of desktops and notebooks, and Research In Motion, a Canadian company that makes BlackBerry smartphones.
Both companies together created a card – called Lenovo Constant Connect – for personal computers that will download emails on the smartphone without the need for wires, even if the notebook on which the messages are stored is turned off. Thus, when the user turns on his notebook, new emails will already be available in the computer's inbox before an internet connection is even established. It will also be possible to send messages from the offline computer via the smartphone.
The card that will allow interactivity between the equipment will cost approximately US $ 150 dollars and reach the North American market in the second quarter of 2009, and is expected to be available in other countries by the end of the year. At first, the technology will work only with Microsoft Outlook, but the integration of Lenovo Constant Connect with Lotus Notes by IBM is already planned.
