HP notebooks to Get Integrated UMSS/HSDPA Wireless Later This Year
Posted on 6-Apr-2006 10:12 by H Willan. | Tags Filed under: News.

Cingular Wireless and HP have entered a marketing agreement that will integrate Cingular's BroadbandConnect into future HP business notebooks.

HP expects to be the first company to provide customers with global 3G capabilities when it expands its range of broadband wireless notebooks to integrate Cingular's UMTS/HSDPA-based technology later this year.

Customers will be able to use this wireless in the United States to either connect with BroadbandConnect or high-speed EDGE services, and abroad in more than 100 countries worldwide in which there are UMTS or GPRS/EDGE networks available.

UMTS/HSDPA is a global standard and an evolutionary path for GSM providers with 45 countries currently offering UMTS service. It provides average download speeds between 400-700 kilobits per second (kbps), with bursts to more than 1Mbps (megabit per second).

HP has offered Cingular GPRS- and then EDGE-enabled wireless PC modem cards to its customers for the past several years. In 2005, Cingular and HP introduced two wireless handheld devices, the HP iPAQ Pocket PC h6320/6325 and the HP iPAQ hw6500 series Mobile Messenger with built-in GPS.
