Verizon adds mobile internet to MacBook Pro

updated 02:00 pm EDT, Thu March 15, 2007

MacBook Pro, internet

Verizon today launched the V740 ExpressCard, a Novatel-made adapter that links any current notebook -- including Apple's MacBook Pro -- with an ExpressCard 34 or 54 slot to Verizon's mobile internet network. The new card enables notebook owners to utilize the mobile carrier's recently launched EVDO Revision A service with up to 800Kbps real-world downloads and 400Kbps uploads. The card works with Apple's MacBook Pro through either a separate driver or those included with Apple's own WWAN update, according to Electronista. Verizon is already offering the card for $180 and will carry it in retail stores on March 30th; 3GStore is already offering pre-orders for the card at $110.

    verizon beware

    Great service, but if you download from iTunes music store (ie movies) or use a Slingbox....they cancel accounts without a warning letter for large downloads or streaming.

    V740

    The Verizon Expresscard that has been out for months is the V640 - this new card is the updated version of that card to a Rev A Expresscard. The V740 is going to be availble for 109.99 at http://3gstore.com, and if you place a preorder for the card, you can also get a booster antenna for 50% off!

    For the latest news on the V740, keep an eye on this post: http://evdoinfo.blogspot.com/2007/02/novatel-v740.html
