Apple’s WWAN Support Update 1.0 brings support for the following new cell carrier-based based networking cards (WWAN = wireless wide-area networking):
- Available on the Cingular network
- Novatel Merlin XU870 ExpressCard (HSDPA)
- Available on the Sprint network
- Available on the Verizon network
I’m only about six months in to a 2 year contract for Verizon V640 EVDO Card, so I’ll have to wait to take advantage of the Rev A speeds. I could buy a shiny new card for a few hundred bucks, but I’m saving it for an iPhone, of course. Besides, My little old V640 still rocks on the train and is often faster than a hotel’s service in some cities (though the capped upload speeds are frustrating).
