What’s New from Huawei, Microsoft, Reskube, Bidnow and Bioarmor

Foldable smartphone

Huawei Consumer Business Group’s flagship foldable smartphone, the HUAWEI P50 Pocket Premium Edition, is the result of a collaboration with haute couture designer Iris Van Herpen. Highlights include a 6.9in display (when unfolded) with a 21:9 ratio perfect for viewing cinematic content; an improved hinge and seamless folding design; a smart cover screen for notifications and easy access to services; and enhanced camera functionality. Two notable features are Sunscreen detection, accessed via the Mirror app, which lets you check for bare patches; and Super Privacy mode, which automatically disables the cameras, microphone and location when the device is folded. The HUAWEI P50 Pocket is available in White or Premium Gold.



Built for learning

After working with Microsoft on pilot programs in schools around the world, Acer is launching its first PCs running Windows 11 SE, a cloud-first Windows operating system built for learning. Designed for use on affordable devices pre-configured for student privacy and remote management, Windows 11 SE combines the performance of Windows 11, modern management tools and an easy-to-use interface with fewer distractions and a menu of education-first apps. The first Acer devices to come pre- installed with Windows 11 SE or Windows 11 Pro Education are the 11.6-inch Acer TravelMate B3 and Acer TravelMate Spin B3 (with anti-microbial protection). Prices start at £210 and £259 respectively.

Bidding for business

Public sector procurement contract expert OPPORTUNI is doing its bit to support
the levelling up agenda by adding a bid-writing service to its suite of software- as-a-service products designed to help SMEs find, compete for and win public sector contracts. BidNow has an annual membership fee of £3,500 for unlimited bid-finding and bid writing, compared to an average submission cost of £2,800 per bid. Once signed up, subscribers will have 12 months access to the BidNow membership which includes unlimited no win, no fee bid support from hundreds of qualified bid writers. Tim Ward, co-founder and CEO of OPPORTUNI, believes the service’s win-fee model removes one of the big obstacles stopping SMEs from competing for public sector tenders: “BidNow significantly reduces the element of risk for SMEs as they are effectively employing the best in the business, without any overheads.”



Resilience for home workers

Reskube, an enterprise-grade remote working resilience solution, is designed to combat the growing threat of internet and power outages suffered by two in three people who worked from home last year. Developed in partnership with APC by Schneider Electric, the UK-made solution monitors the supply of home internet and power and instantly provides backup if either drops off. Once supply is restored, the Reskube switches seamlessly back to the home network and power. Reskube is available in models with different levels of backup, with or without a SIM, depending on customer requirements. It can be bought outright from £599 per unit or acquired as a service, from Computacenter and Kyndryl, from £39 per unit, per month.
