Dell has followed suit and has announced plans to incorporate Sim card slots into future laptop models to allow users to connect to the internet via 3G links as well as Wi-Fi. Like Acerís new offerings, support for HSDPA is there, and in the case of Dell, an HSDPA aerial will be built into the laptops, which is interoperable with current 3G services offered by Vodafone.
"This is another important step in providing world-class mobile broadband technology to Dell customers," said Jeff Kimbell, director of business marketing for Dell EMEA.
"With Dell and Vodafone working together, customers can benefit from built-in, easy-to-use technology which provides access to the 3G wireless network deployed broadly worldwide."
