Dell Puts Vodafone 3G in Euro Laptops

Dell is planning to embed Vodafone's 3G wireless broadband technology in notebook PCs sold in the UK, France, and Germany. The agreement represents the latest in a series of similar deals between Dell and wireless operators rolling out 3G networks.

Last Fall, for example, Dell inked agreements with both Cingular and Verizon in the U.S., with plans to roll out 3G-enabled laptops here soon.

In the first half of this year, Dell will offer the Vodafone-enabled computers with the optional integrated High-Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) capabilities.

HSDPA is a wireless broadband technology that boosts 3G download speeds by approximately four times. A subscription to a Vodafone wireless data plan will be required to use the new broadband service.
