Qualcomm chip can make laptops to ultilize cellular broadband services

NEW YORK - Qualcomm Inc. on Wednesday launched a chip that will make it easier to build laptops compatible with the two dominant cellular broadband technologies in the United States.
Currently, business-oriented laptops are generally available with chips for either AT&T Inc.'s, Verizon Wireless' or Sprint Nextel Corp.'s networks. AT&T's network uses a technology called HSPA, or High-Speed Packet Access, while Sprint and Verizon Wireless use EV-DO, or Evolution-Data Optimized.
Both network technologies are also being rolled out overseas, with HSDPA being the dominant choice.Sign by Dealighted - Brijesh
