Think: Security

The IBM ThinkPad T Series makes quick work of high-level security. Each model features an IBM Embedded Security Subsystem and an Integrated Fingerprint Reader built into the palm rest. The swipe of a finger replaces passwords—and keeps unauthorized users from accessing the notebook. The series starts at 1 inch thick and 4.5 pounds, and select versions offer 15.1-inch TFT displays, the latest Intel Pentium M processors and up to 128 MB of graphics memory. Price: Starts at $1,429.

Key to Confidential

The SecuriKey Enterprise Edition is a computer security system for Macs and PCs based around a tiny USB key designed to reside on your keychain. Once the SecuriKey software is installed, simply insert the USB key to access a computer; without the key, however, even the correct password won’t gain an intruder access. Ideal for law firms, hospitals, financial institutions and anyone with confidential or proprietary data to protect. Price: $130.

Three In One

HP’s iPAQ h6315 Pocket PC phone features integrated three-way wireless capabilities (GSM/GPRS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth) for high-speed voice and data connectivity—and it’s the first and smallest to do so. A 3.5-inch color screen aids in taking and sharing photos—in person or over e-mail or MMS—and a snap-on (and very Treo-like) thumb keyboard makes it easy to dash off corporate or personal e-mails, notes and MMS/SMS messages. Phone capabilities work
exclusively with T-Mobile. Price: $599.

Good Thing, Small Package

Not only is SanDisk’s Wi-Fi SD Card the smallest Wi-Fi card on the market, enabling users with SDIO-enabled handhelds and cell phones to connect to 802.11b hotspots worldwide, but it contains 256 MB of flash memory, which means you don’t have to choose between a memory card and a Wi-Fi card when using a device with a single expansion card slot. Compatible with Pocket PC 2002 and 2003, Palm Zire 71s with an SDIO-enabled slot and devices running Windows Mobile 2003 for Smartphone. Price: $149.99.
