Novatel PC770 at Verizon
Verizon this afternoon added a rare two-in-one modem to its 3G adapters. Novatel's PC770 has a nested design that can either work as an ExpressCard/34 adapter for some modern notebooks or, with an adapter, fits into older systems with PC Card slots. It supports up to EVDO Revision A speeds and uses technology from Novatel that reportedly helps maintain speed during simultaneous two-way traffic.
The card works with both Windows PCs as well as some MacBook Pros and PowerBooks. It's slated to arrive in retail stores on August 2nd and will sell for $100 when joined to a two-year data plan and a $50 rebate.
