HP and Qualcomm are working together to incorporate Qualcomm's Gobi global mobile Internet technology in select 2008 HP business notebooks to enable high-speed connectivity on 3G UMTS HSPA / EV-DO networks with a single wireless solution.

The Gobi platform is a significant step forward, providing greater accessibility to data services for our customers on the move," said Oliver Mauss, Global Director of Business Marketing of Vodafone. "We are actively engaged with both Qualcomm and HP to deliver 3G broadband connectivity and expect this collaboration to further accelerate mass market adoption."

The embedded Gobi solution includes Qualcomm's MDM1000 chipset, associated software and API, and a reference design for a software-defined configurable data module supporting both EV-DO Rev. A and HSPA.
