Ultra-mobile PC makers will have to decide which wireless technologies they want to embed in the devices if they are to take advantage of the growing embedded wireless marketplace and consumer dissatisfaction with spotty WiFi coverage, according to research by In-Stat. UMPC makers must choose between WiMAX, EV-DO, HSPA or LTE technology, which all have their own pros and cons. Wireless companies like AT&T Mobility are already experimenting with UMPC makers on business models that provide wireless broadband service to UMPCs. Release
