IBM and Sanyo announced a prototype of a new methanol fuel cell for usage in notebooks. The companies expect to commercialize it by 2007 or 2008.
IBM is considering endorsing the fuel cell for use in its ThinkPad-branded laptop PCs, it said. Electronics vendors hope that fuel cells will allow portable devices to run for longer without recharging than today's battery technologies.
