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.
