A new mobile broadband module has been developed by Ericsson, ready for use with 3Genabled computers.
The Ericsson's F3607gw will work with HSPA/GPRS/EDGE and possesses a number of features which will improve computer performance such as lower battery consumption and added integration.
Laptop owners can "wake up" their computers from sleep mode with a remote function, which works as the machine is connected to the internet via wireless even when it is turned off.
"The combination of leading technology and innovative design in the next-generation module is key to delivering a superior user experience at an affordable price," said Mats Norin, vice president of Ericsson Mobile Broadband Modules.
"This module release confirms Ericsson's commitment to making the benefits of connectivity available to everyone."
The "wake on" feature also enables functions such as Anti-Theft PC Protection Technology from Intel, which can secure a machine via text message.
