Option HSDPA ExpressCard

Option today revealed the GlobeTrotter EXPRESS 7.2, the company's first ExpressCard/34 adapter to support the upcoming 7.2Mbps speed increase of the HSDPA standard, which is expected to arrive for cellular providers such as Cingular next year. Option says it emphasizes simplicity with its design. The receiver automatically detects networks available to the owner, including UMTS alongside the older EDGE and GPRS standards, and automatically switches to the fastest connection. Software drivers are also non-issues, the company claims, as the necessary software is embedded in the card and will automatically prepare a Mac OS X or Windows PC without user intervention. Option is preparing to ship the EXPRESS 7.2 to major carriers in January but has not made specific companies or prices known.
