Finally, a USB adapter for Cardbus 3G cards


Elan Digital Systems is releasing a USB adapter specifically designed to accept Wireless PCMCIA cards for portable devices that have no PCMCIA slots. The U132 will ship in February and allows users to connect 3G PCMCIA cards to Wndows XP devices with a USB 2.0 port. What makes the introduction of the U132 so exciting is the list of 3G cards the company is listing as compatible:

  • Alltel CDMA, USA (Kyocera Wireless Passport KPC650)
  • Iusacell CDMA, Mexico (Kyocera Wireless Passport KPC650)
  • MTN Mobile Office Fusion Card, South Africa (Option Fusion)
  • Movistar CDMA, Argentina (Kyocera Wireless Passport KPC650)
  • Optimus Telecommunications, Portugal (Huawei E600)
  • Orange Mobile Office Fusion Card, UK + France (Option Fusion)
  • Sprint CDMA, USA (Novatel Wireless S620)
  • T-Mobile, Germany + Austria (Option Fusion)
  • Verizon CDMA, USA (Kyocera Wireless Passport KPC650)
  • Verizon CDMA, USA (Novatel Wireless V620)
  • Vivo CDMA, Brazil (Kyocera Wireless Passport KPC650)
  • Vodacom UMTS, South Africa (Fusion Card)
  • Vodafone UMTS, UK (Mobile Connect Card)

This adapter could allow me to use my Verizon EVDO card in devices such as the Motion LS800 or the soon to be released DualCor cPC. Yowza!

I have a 3G wireless modem from Telstra Australia. It is an Option Model GX0202

Would you have a reader slot that I could use on a PC via USB




I have a Cingular wireless card for my notebook. Is it possible to use this wireless device with a smaller more portable device?

Dear all,

Can i use this card if i have macbook pro or macbook having tiger installed in it.

Why would a device such as the DualCor which has a phone and thus internet connectivity built in need a card like Verizon Broadbands PC Cards.

and the mac user should check out Macally they have one for mac
