ASUS debuts 3.5G PC Card

Computer and general electronics maker ASUS has announced the T500, a cellular broadband modem that fits into a laptop's PC Card slot. It is a foremost a WCDMA/UMTS card, able to download at speeds up to 3.6Mbps on 850, 1900 and 2100MHz frequencies; should broadband not be available, it can be stepped down to GPRS or EDGE at 850, 900, 1800 or 1900MHz.

The modem is also notable for an internal antenna, plus a headset jack for voice calls, and the ability to send SMS messages. Contacts can be synched with Microsoft Outlook, and the modem stores call records of the 100 last dialed, missed or received numbers. While ASUS says that the T500 is now on sale, the company does not currently have a product page.
