HP and Cingular launch global HSDPA laptop

HP and Cingular Wireless launched a laptop, the Compaq nc6400, which features integrated Cingular Wireless UMTS/HSDPA-based technology. The companies claim the nc6400 is the first laptop with a tri-band UMTS modem, meaning it can connect to UMTS networks in the U.S. and more than 115 countries that have UMTS or GPRS/EDGE networks. The modem facilitates data rates up to 3.6 megabits per second in the U.S. Both HP and Cingular Wireless will market the new business laptop.
