T-Mobile selling HSDPA laptops

Kevin C. Tofel

Now that Intel dropped the "Intel Inside" campaign, will T-Mobile pick up the slogan? Probably not, but based on their recent news to subsidize laptops in Germany for up to 500 euros, you have to wonder. The strategic deal isn't radically different than other cellular carriers helping to sell laptops with their high-speed data functions until you realize that T-Mobile will actually sell these HSDPA-enabled laptops. With a subsidy of up to 500 euros per notebook, some models could conceivably cost as little as a current 3G-capable phone selling for 100 euros. Hey, if the strategy seems to work, perhaps T-Mobile will spread some HSDPA laptop love over here? No word on which laptops will get the super-speedy signal treatment.
