ASUS notebook builds in 3.5G wireless

ASUS V2Je

ASUS today launched the V2Je notebook. Geared towards frequent travelers who need Internet access from almost anywhere, certain models of the 14-inch laptop include a built-in 3.5G wireless adapter. The modem taps into most HSDPA and UMTS mobile broadband networks to give Internet access as quick as 3.6Mbps in downloads without a phone -- four times faster than most networks, ASUS says. The system itself is also fast, with Core 2 Duos ranging between 1.66GHz and 2.33GHz as well as a 256MB Mobility Radeon X1450 to help accelerate 3D tasks.

The V2Je should be available now in Europe with a 1.3-megapixel webcam, multi-format card reader, and a fingerprint reader for security. A North American version hasn't been discussed and might require changes to its wireless support. [via Core Duo News]
