Toshiba R400 3G Wireless

Toshiba is about to update its showcase notebook for Windows Vista with 3G Internet access, according to a newly discovered FCC filing. The Portégé R400 convertible tablet has been tested by the US government agency with an Expedite EU870 transmitter that would give it both HSDPA and UMTS Internet access without an external adapter -- letting its road warrior audience connect at a theoretical 3.6Mbps without an external adapter.

Anticipated release dates weren't part of the FCC revelation, but the filing indicates a release within the next few months. The result may make the R400 one of the first notebooks to have explicit support for AT&T's faster 3G network and opens the possibility of roaming with the notebook in Europe. [via Core Duo News]
