Sprint Releases EVDO Rev. A Card, Faster Than ‘Regular’ EVDO – Gizmodo

By now, you trustly loyal readers know I’ve fallen helplessly in love with wireless computing. My dear little Sony Ericcson EDGE card has done a marvelous job. Since I travel a fair bit I’m reluctant to offer it for sale to go to EVDO. Speed is of secondary concern. Coverage is primary. I’m just not sure I’ll get the coverage domestically and overseas by switching away from GSM + TMobile. Oh, and the fact it works like a friggin champ on my PowerBook… utmost concern!

Whaddya think RD? You of all people would know…

Since the MacBook Pro has standardized on the Express Card format and jettisoned PCMCIA… Apple’s been without an EVDO card option for their pro laptops… That is until now.

Verizon and the Novatel V640 are supposed to be pretty hot. The forums are filling up with underinformed campers out there, though.

I also happen to know a guy close to the whole EVDO side of life here in town… Maybe he’ll drop a line as to what works and what doesn’t with Macs and Sprint’s networks. RD, care to enlighten the EVDO hungry Mac horde? 🙂

Macintosh, EVDO, Ericsson GC89 & EDGE

OK, so I took possession of the GC89 card before lunch. Short of it… It works!
Installation was anything but straight forward. I didn’t keep track of how much time I spent trying to get in touch with just the right tier of support at T-Mobile (but, I did eventually). Probably close to an hour.

I’ll post my trials/tribulations in the hopes it will help some folks out there. (more…)

EVDO for my Mac… VERY Cool!

February 15, 2006

Just got off the phone with Bill at WirelessBuy.com and got one hell of a deal on the GC89 Erricson EVDO card.
