Gigabyte 3.5G/GPS modem

Umbrella technology company Gigabyte has offered a brief peak at a new cellular modem, the MD800. Buyers will have the option of three different interfaces -- ExpressCard, mini-USB or PCMCIA -- and gain access to 3.5G-level broadband, likely some form of HSPA. The card should also be the first to combine this with both GPS and assisted GPS abilities, expanding the functions of phones and/or computers.

Set to be announced with the MD800 at next week's CeBIT conference is the MS808 (not pictured), a phone which also takes advantage of 3.5G and GPS technology. Its main advantage however will be support for four mobile TV standards, including DVB-T, DVB-H, T-DMB and ISDB-T. This suggests that the phone will never appear in North America in its current configuration. [via The Inquirer]
