Another laptop gets built-in Voda HSDPA

The HP Compaq nc6400 is the latest laptop to feature built-in 3G and HSDPA technology from Vodafone. The £949 computer will come with a Vodafone SIM and the Vodafone Connection Manager software preinstalled.

Jeremy Green, principal analyst for enterprise mobility at Ovum, likes the idea: “We are firmly convinced that embedded modules will be a powerful enabler for the mobile data services market. It is a strong sign that the IT vendors are taking seriously the opportunities created by HSDPA.
“Embedded modules will be easier for end users too – both in terms of set-up and operation, and there are solid reasons to expect that they will deliver better performance too.”
