Many vendors including Lenovo, HP and Sony are offering built in cellular broadband antennas in their notebook computers. All you have to do is subscribe to a cellular service provider (Verizon, Sprint, Cingular) at around $50 – $80 per month for unlimited use. If you find that your work takes you AWAY from the city where WiFi hotspots are numerous and you MUST access email/web on your PC on demand, then this is an ideal option. Of course you could just use a BlackBerry or Treo as well.
I hope to soon test out Verizon Wireless broadband as part of the upcoming Small Business Summit for a few weeks beyond the summit.
Right now you can buy a PC Card that will it into your notebook or use a USB cable to connect your phone and connect to cellular broadband. But having an antenna built into your notebook is much better.
