First HSDPA datacard in the market?
January 25, 2006
Looks like Option is one of the first companies to release an HSDPA data card to the market, called the Globetrotter HSDPA. The card is capable of data speeds of up to 1.8Mbps. Mobilkom in Austria has been selling this as of the 23rd January.
The PCMCIA card is multimode with the following RF types, HSDPA/UMTS/EDGE/GPRS/GSM.
Looks like HSDPA is becoming the 3G flavour of 2006. There are a lot of carriers worldwide looking at going direct to HSDPA for their 3G roll outs.
