3Com to release 56K global modem PC Card

In mid-July 3Com is planning to release a new 56K global modem PC Card that can be used in over 250 countries and regions around the world, claims the company.

According to a statement released by 3Com, the 3Com Megahertz 56K Global GSM & Cellular Modem PC Card "supports a multitude of landline and mobile phone systems, and provides easy connections in over 250 countries and regions worldwide".

The card connects via standard phone lines and cellular and GSM phones, and features the company's XJACK connector, which means additional cables are not required.

The card also features: line probing, which negotiates line impairments; one-step configuration with DynamicAccess Mobile Connection Manager; and WorldPort country selection software, which allows the user to configure the modem for a country's phonelines by clicking on the appropriate flag or name.

The card will have an ex-tax price of $365.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
