A first look: Sprint Mobile Broadband PCMCIA

The Sprint Mobile Broadband card from Pantech looks pretty much like any other PCMCIA card. But this card provides high-speed access to your mobile workforce without having to worry about the typical 802.11 wireless access points. In my hometown of Louisville, KY, the Sprint Mobile Broadband service covers the entire metropolitan area so I could go anywhere in town and never lose connection. Not bad for about $60 a month.

However, before you sign that two-year service contract make sure your area is covered. Sprint is adding areas all the time so you'll have to do some research to support your purchase before hand.
