CTIA: Cingular inside laptops

LAS VEGAS — Cingular Wireless said today that it is integrating its high-speed cellular connection into HP business laptops.

WIth the announcement, HP is expected to be the first company to provide 3G capability worldwide when it incorporates Cingular’s so-called UMTS/HSDPA-based technology into the laptops later this year.

Customers will be able to connect to the Internet with the service in both the U.S. and in more than 100 countries worldwide in which there are UMTS or GPRS/EDGE networks available. BroadbandConnect service is expected to be available in most major U.S. markets by the end of this year.
