Sony Ericsson introduces GC99 3G UMTS and Wi-Fi card
The Sony Ericsson GC99 PC card combines Wi-Fi with 3G/UMTS and global quad band GSM/EDGE/GPRS connectivity, providing a variety of network choices in a single, slim PC card.

The GC99 PC Card offers connectivity on UMTS networks at up to 384 kbps and works anywhere consumers can use a mobile phone. Alternatively, people can take advantage of the 54 Mbps data rate of Wi-Fi (WLAN) networks in offices or at public hot-spots to browse the Internet, download large attachments, and access streaming material.

The new PC card can also be used with EDGE networks (up to 247.4kbps download and 123.7kbps upload), GPRS (up to 85.6 kbps download and 42.8kbps upload), and CSD (9.6kbps). It works on UMTS 2100MHz and EDGE/GPRS/CSD 850/900/1800/1900 MHz.

An external antenna is also available as an accessory. This is useful when there is low GSM network signal strength.

The GC99 card works with both Windows and Mac operating systems. Installation support includes customisation options that allow corporate IT managers to implement pre-loaded settings that provide one-click VPN connection.

The GC99 will be available in Q4 2005 for the Asia Pacific region, China, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
