AT&T Wireless announces package for Pocket PC and EDGE services
AT&T Wireless has begun offering a bundled device and service package that allows business customers to use their HP iPAQ Pocket PCs to access their fast nationwide wireless data network in North America. Using a Bluetooth enabled iPAQ, business customers can access AT&T Wireless EDGE service by using a Bluetooth enabled Nokia 6820 phone as a portable, high-speed modem.

The company stated that while many business customers want integrated voice and data-capable PDAs, others want the flexibility of carrying separate wireless phones and PDAs without sacrificing functionality. This new package provides a cost-effective solution for business customers looking for this kind of capability and provides a simple way for current iPAQ users to upgrade the capabilities of their existing devices.

We've tested AT&T Wireless EDGE service before, using a Sony Ericsson GC82 EDGE card for laptops. You can read our review with some comments about speed and coverage.

"This new bundle allows iPAQ users to access high-speed wireless data services in ways never before possible," said Abhi Ingle, vice president of business data solutions at AT&T Wireless. "Together, HP and AT&T Wireless have created a simple solution that provides customers with the ability to carry separate devices while still being able to fully leverage the capabilities of each."

Prices vary from US$74.99 if the customer already owns a Bluetooth enabled HP iPAQ, to US$423.99 if buying a package includingthe iPAQ h4350. he package with the iPAQ h4150 costs US$374.98. These prices do not include the voice and data plans.
