Nc6400
We’ve already got a few notebooks with integrated wireless broadband (Dell and Lenovo come to mind), but this appears to be the first model geared towards global connectivity. If you’re a heavy-duty business traveler, you might want to cop a peek at the HP Compaq nc6400 notebook with its integrated wireless capability.

The nc6400 offers HSDPA and EDGE access on Cingular’s network here while also providing UMTS/EDGE service in up to 115 countries around the world. The starting price on the base model is $1,599 and availability is slated for later this month.

    Question: As the EV-DO and HSDPA networks upgrade to Rev A etc., will the receivers that are built into these laptops receive the new flavor speeds?

    If not, I’d be tempted to stick with a $50 HSDPA PC card rather than have my $59 a month data plan not get the full speed the network will be putting out next year (although a card prob consumes more battery).

    Thanks in advance.
