Ericsson frees netbooks from dongles and wires

Ericsson today launched its latest mobile broadband module specifically designed for netbooks. Pre-certified with many of the world’s largest networks, the new module enables manufactures to quickly equip their netbooks with integrated wireless connectivity.
The Ericsson F3307 embedded mobile broadband module frees netbooks from other connectivity solutions such as dongles, enables users to directly access the internet through HSPA.
Additionally, Ericsson is working closely with Intel to validate the F3307 mobile broadband module with Intel’s next-generation netbook platform, Pine Trail-M.
Erik Reid, Director of Marketing, Intel Mobile Platforms Group says: “Built-in mobile broadband helps provide the anytime, anywhere connectivity that consumers desire. By working closely with Ericsson, we are enabling manufacturers to address broader market needs at a faster time to market through new channels, such as mobile operators, with our next-generation netbook platform, Pine Trail-M.”
Ericsson estimates that more than 300 million netbooks will be sold between 2009 and 2014 with a majority having mobile broadband capabilities. Many operators are already offering mobile broadband bundled notebooks and by 2011, more than 30 percent of netbooks will be sold through operator channels.
