Getting us one baby step closer to actual high-speed 3G wireless service, the FCC approved Novatel's Merlin U520 PC
laptop card, which is designed to connect to UMTS cellular networks with a top speed of 384 kbps (in the real world
it'll probably be somewhat slower). Anyway, this is the card which Cingular is going to use in its 3G trials in Atlanta
later this year.
