Telecommunications group Ericsson has developed a new module, which allows manufacturers to quickly embed mobile broadband into laptops.

The Swedish firm's F3307 device is intended to give mobile internet subscribers greater freedom while using netbooks and already has approval from broadband providers in more than 75 nations.

Ericsson's announcement comes on the back of netbook manufacturer Dell announcing that it would be discontinuing its mobile broadband-embedded Inspiron Mini 9.

Mats Norin, Vice President of Ericsson Mobile Broadband Modules, said: "Netbooks are redefining the way consumers think about the internet and mobile broadband.

"By coupling our cost-effective mobile broadband solution with the affordability of netbooks, Ericsson is bringing connectivity to the masses."

He added that the technology allowed users "to enjoy" content such as video and photos while on the move.

The company estimates that over 300 million netbooks will be sold worldwide within the next 30 years, with the majority of this figure equipped with mobile broadband.
