Vodafone has finalised a deal with Lenovo to launch a laptop which will offer in-built 3G connectivity for mobile broadband.
The news means customers will no longer be required to fork out for a 3G datacard in order to surf the web while on the move.
According to reports, the new connectivity option will be available with new ThinkPad notebooks in the T and X Series, as well as on all of Lenovo's new ThinkPad SL Series notebooks.
Gareth Beavis of technology news provider Tech Radar commented: "Mobile broadband has become something of a buzzword for the mobile networks, so should this series, launched on the 4th August, prove popular, it could be a major coup for Vodafone."
Vodafone is offering a 30-day trial to all those who purchase laptops included in the offer. At the end of that period customers can then opt out, or choose to continue using the service.
