Sony Ericsson releases 3G UMTS/EDGE/GPRS PC Card
The UMTS/EDGE quad-band wireless PC Card Sony Ericsson GC95 delivers high speed with data rates of up to 384 kbps on 3G UMTS networks or up to 247 kbps when on the GSM/EDGE/GPRS networks.

"Sony Ericsson believes that the GC95 UMTS/EDGE combination sets precedence for the future of wireless PC Cards. We have always offered a cutting-edge product portfolio of PC Cards and the GC95 card continues that legacy," said Anders Franzén, Corporate Vice President and Head of Sony Ericsson M2M Communications. "Just about every frequent traveller can tell you a story about their difficulties getting a connection on the road. The GC95 PC Card frees people up to focus on their objectives versus worrying about whether they can get a connection. Sony Ericsson's GC95 PC Card makes it easy to get a connection at the fastest possible speeds."

The EDGE technology, an overlay over GPRS that results in increased data speed, has been adopted by more than 136 operators around the world who represent more than a quarter of a billion customers within their subscriber base today. Additionally more than fifty UMTS networks are already in service world-wide and roughly double that amount scheduled to go commercial in the near future.

The GC95 will be available for operator acceptance testing and customer trials Q2 2005, with commercial availability during Q3 2005.
