Ericsson to supply Dell with HSPA modules

Ericsson teamed up with Dell to ensure international travellers can stay connected with Dell's next-generation laptops that will support seamless roaming on tri-band HSPA mobile broadband networks.

Dell will offer built-in HSPA mobile broadband modules from Ericsson beginning in the second quarter 2008, the company said.

HSPA has commercial deployments in over 185 networks around the world, collectively serving more than one billion subscribers.

Market projections indicate that in 2011, approximately 200 million notebooks will ship annually and Ericsson anticipates that 50% of those notebooks will feature a built-in HSPA mobile broadband module.
