Computer manufacturer Packard Bell held a press conference to introduce its new EMEA boss Luca Rossi along with a look at its new range of devices

In a press event by the Acer subsidiary, not only did Packard Bell introduce Luca Rossi as the new Director for their EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) division, but various devices from the company's product portfolio were presented. The devices included the new Packard Bell's EasyNote X-Series notebooks (EasyNote TX62HR, TX69HR and NX69HR), along with the new Liberty Tab tablet.

While the 15.6" EasyNote TX62HR and TX69HR provide blue or silver colored lid designs, the 14" EasyNote NX69HR is set apart due to its aluminum look. The notebook features a slightly curved, modern style of speakers that is visually dominant in contrast to the settled and large touchpad.

As far as the specs go, the approximately 2.5kg heavy and 378 x 250 x 25 Millimeter EasyNote-TX models pack an Intel Sandy Bridge processor and offer the choice of either an Intel HD 3000, an NVIDIA GeForce GT540M (2GB VRAM) or a GeForce GT 520M (1GB of VRAM) GPU. The EasyNote TX series should be available in May of 2011 for around 600 Euros ($865).

As for the NX69HR notebook, while it does feature a 13.3" screen; Packard Bell is claiming the edgeless display actually provides 14" readability.The NX69HR should also include Intel Sandy Bridge processors, an NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M with 1GB of VRAM and up to 750GB of storage. The Packard Bell EasyNote NX series should also be available in May for around 600 Euros.

Of course, the Packard Bell conference would not have been complete without displaying the company's new tablet- the Libert Tab. Packard Bell announced that the tablet would be priced differently depending on the model and should be available in June for European retailers. The technical data such as the 10.1" WXVGA display with a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution, NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, HDMI, USB, Micro-USB, GPS, 3G/UMTS, WLAN and 5MP rear-facing camera were all previously known.
