Novatel HSDPA ExpressCard

Users of more recent laptops with ExpressCard slots who would like to subscribe to the latest mobile broadband from Cingular or T-Mobile no longer need to resort to a USB adapter. Novatel, one of the main suppliers of mobile broadband cards, said today that it had begun shipping its new Merlin XU870 ExpressCard/34 adapter to carriers. The device supports both the 3.6Mbps maximum speed of HSDPA and also supports earlier or less common connections such as UMTS (soon to be used by T-Mobile USA), EDGE, and GPRS. The XU870 works with MacBook Pros through a downloadable driver as well as Linux and Windows PCs; Novatel says it should make its way to relevant carriers by the end of the year.
