In addition to the Acer M3 Ultrabook, U Mobile also has broadband bundles for the Acer Iconia Tab W501, catering to those who prefer to own a tablet.

Speaking at the event, Jaffa Sany Ariffin, CEO of U Mobile, said, “This collaboration marks the coming together of three innovative entities that are dynamic and responsive to their target audiences. We believe this bundle will bring ample benefits to our customers who value the best in mobility and connectivity. This initiative is also in line with our constant strive to enrich our range of products and services to cater to our customers’ needs.”

The 15.6″ Acer M3 Ultrabook  is the world’s first Ultrabook dedicated to graphics.  It is perfect for users who want to create and enjoy image-rich content, play killer games, or watching the best movies. Built for speed and mobility, it is ultra-light with an ultra-thin design that packs a 2nd generation Intel Core i5 processor and NVIDIA GeForce discrete graphics. In just 1.5 seconds, Acer Green Instant On wakes your Ultrabook from sleep and in 2.5 seconds, Acer Always Connect gets you online while the battery lasts for over 8 hours.

To give customers a chance to experience the Acer M3 Ultrabook running with U Mobile’s broadband service, Intel and U Mobile have created special, free-standing kiosks which can be found at 6 different U Mobile stores around the nation, namely Berjaya Times Square, 1Utama, Sunway Pyramid, PIKOM IT Mall, Queensbay Mall Penang and Taman Molek Johor Bahru.
