Acer adds EDGE/HSDPA to Core Duo laptops

Marc Perton

Sony may have a GPRS/EDGE-equipped laptop, and Lenovo may have one with built in HSDPA, but Acer may be able to claim the crown as the first company to bundle wireless cellular services on a Core Duo-based model. The company's new TravelMate 4260 and Aspire 5650 series laptops include built-in three-band GPRS/EDGE capabilities, and are upgradeable to HSDPA as the service is rolled out. Of course, you'll still need a service contract to actually use the wireless functions, but at least you won't have to sacrifice a PC Card slot to do it.
