Sierra Wireless announced today the launch of their embedded module for the EVDO network (currently only Verizon in the US). The EM5625 is scheduled for delivery in the second quarter of 2005 and has already been selected by Panasonic and @Road for integration into products expected to appear in the same quarter. This is a very significant announcement that will allow OEMs to put always on high-speed wireless connectivity right into the mobile computers where it should be. Imagine having a Tablet PC with such connectivitiy integrated into the computer. Sweet!
