Mobile broadband news

Providers choosing laptops to make available to customers in mobile broadband bundles are best selecting small devices.

That is the view of Simon Williams of technology news provider Tech Radar, who says that a light-weight, easy-to-carry machine is most useful for the purposes of mobile broadband subscribers.

"The idea that somebody who wants mobile broadband might want a sub-notebook is a sound one," commented Mr Williams.

He continued: "Most people want internet on the move for email and web news rather than gaming or video, so something small and light with better functionality than a PDA can be appealing."

Francois Mahieu, Orange's director of services, recently told vnunet that more consumers are becoming interested by laptops possessing in-built mobile broadband modules.

The mobile broadband provider has been offering HTC Shift mini-laptops with 3G technology since February.
