Connectivity for SMEs with Toshiba

The Portégé Z20t now has ‘always on’ capabilities

The Portégé Z20t is Toshiba’s high-end, 2-in-1, 12,5” tablet specifically addressing professionals on the go. To this purpose, the tablet has an exceptional battery life. Toshiba France and Transatel joined forces to make the product even more mobile, by lending it new cellular connectivity capabilities.


The Challenge

The tablets and laptops market for SMEs is a very competitive one. Toshiba needs state-of-the-art functionalities to stay ahead of the curve and satisfy demanding customers. To stay on-message with the Portégé in France, Toshiba sought an added edge, based on connectivity:

  • better productivity, through “always on” connectivity
  • a turnkey solution offering secure data transmission
  • easy budgeting and payment, with no unpleasant surprises at the end of the month


The Solution

Toshiba enriched the Portégé Z20t (references 11C, 11G and 121) with an embedded 4G module and installed SIM 901 at point of manufacture. The user experience always a major concern, Transatel helped develop Toshiba’s end-user interface, Easyconnect, to facilitate the recharge of the prepaid SIM card, valid in 45 countries to date.



The Win

Portégé Z20t end-users benefit from worldwide connectivity in 4G or 3G at local prices, which aptly complements the outstanding autonomy of the product. The Portégé Z20t therefore now really does have “always on” capabilities, from staying on to staying connected!
