HP is set to release some business laptops later this year with integrated UMTS/HSDPA technology for global wireless internet connectivity. Of course, HP's not the first manufacturer to offer laptops with HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access), but it is a further indication that the technology is becoming more mainstream --after all, Ethernet and WiFi were once only available as add-ons.  With the new laptops, users will be able to access networks like Cingular's BroadbandConnect and EDGE in the US as well as UMTS networks overseas. Still no word on actual specs on the laptops otherwise, or an exact release date.
