The Sony Ericsson GC82 is a dual band (850/1900 MHz) PC Card, incorporating high speed EDGE technology into mobile PC computing. It's available for use on AT&T Wireless EDGE network and HP is offering it on-line.
EDGE data speeds averages 100-130kbps and bursts up to 200kbps.
HP further outpaces the competition in wireless Internet by making EDGE technology available to customers using notebook and Tablet PCs so they can increase business communication cycle times and improve corporate productivity," said Kevin Frost, vice president of notebook marketing, Personal Systems Group, HP. "Companies also get a great return on their investment because workers can stay connected to the network for longer periods of time and at higher speeds.
The card costs US$249.99 but there's a US$100 rebate available for new connections.
