EC360 EVDO Card at Alltel

Alltel this morning said it had launched the Huawei EC360, a new PC Card for frequent travelers that need its EVDO broadband on the road. The adapter is theoretically one of the fastest mobile Internet cards available for Alltel or other CDMA network providers and peaks at 2.4Mbps downstream; users on the fringes of coverage or in rural areas can fall back to 1XRTT, and a flip-up antenna rests completely flush with the card when not in use to prevent it snapping off inside a bag.

The cellular provider hopes to make the EC360 easily accessible and ships the card today either as a $190 option without a new contract or completely free when paired with a two-year data plan worth $60 or more. Using the Huawei adapter officially requires Windows 2000, XP, or Vista.
