AT&T's new hybrid ExpressCard modem

AT&T hybrid modem

Matching its announcement of a new USB modem, AT&T has also released an ExpressCard 34/54 product, the Option GT Max 3.6 Express. Unlike the 875U, the 3.6 Express supports not one but two protocols, EDGE and HSDPA. The former is capable of speeds up to 216Kbps, but of course the real attraction is the latter, with some downloads as fast as 3.6Mbps. For better connectivity the modem has its own flip-up antenna, and supports a wider range of frequencies -- quad-band in EDGE, tri-band in HSDPA. The 3.6 Express is on sale now for $50, but also requires subscriptions to AT&T voice and data plans.

    Mac support?

    Too bad it doesn't have mac support yet. Hopefully it will soon. I am a cingular/att customer and really want to get an expresscard to use with my MacBook Pro but am having trouble finding one.

    Re: mac support

    Yeah, its really great that Apple lives so far on the edge of the tech curve, isn't it! No PC Cards for us great Mac users, we get slots with no supporting hardware!

    There are supported cards

    Check out www.evdoinfo.com.

    You will find software and express cards from a few carriers and manufacturers. Hopes this helps!
