Novatel Introduces U730 HSDPA card for laptops
Novatel Wireless, Inc. has released the Merlin U730 High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) Wireless PC Card Modem to support the launch of Cingular Wireless' initial 3G network launch.

The Merlin U730 gives Cingular Wireless customers data access to the first commercial HSDPA network in America. With average speeds between 400 and 700 kilobits per second and bursts over a megabit, business professionals can conveniently access email including large attachments, connect to corporate networks and applications via VPNs, and surf the Internet.

Due to the Merlin U730's backward compatibility, the card works not only on Cingular's newly launched HSDPA network but also on Cingular's nationwide Enhanced Data Rates for Global Evolution (EDGE) network, and in more than 90 countries where Cingular has EDGE and General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) roaming agreements. As Cingular expands its HSPDA network, subscribers using the Merlin U730 can automatically connect without having to purchase a new PC card, additional hardware or upgrade rate plans.

The Novatel Wireless Merlin U730 is available from Cingular for as low as US$99.99 based on a two-year, unlimited Data Connect plan. Cingular's unlimited use Data Connect rate plan is on special offer for US$59.99.
