ExpressCard EVDO Available

Those of us who buy laptops on the cutting edge have faced a dilemma when trying to connect to mobile broadband services: many of these computers either offer internal support for only one of these services, or else have abandoned the old PC Card format in favor of the much faster ExpressCard - for which we've seen few if any adapters. Thankfully, Verizon customers can now pick up the V640, an EVDO ExpressCard adapter made by Novatel if they order from the cellular provider's online store (retail stores will see the adapters on the 24th). Sprint customers will probably get the unit under the S640 name. The V640 is expensive at $180 alongside a two-year agreement, but for those of us who need to go online and can't rely on WiFi hotspots, it will be worth the price.
