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.

Gobi technology enhances HP notebook customers' choice of mobile operators and will help increase international roaming capabilities.

Gobi technology will be offered on a range of 2008 HP notebook products, including ultra-portable, balanced mobility and performance categories. The addition of Gobi technology allows customers to access wireless networks capabilities beyond a Wi-Fi network to stay connected on various network technologies.

"Vodafone is committed to growing the market for 3G broadband, with particular focus on the built-in laptop sector. 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.
