3G wireless networks were getting quite a bit of press indirectly through the controversy that was the iPhone and the absense of 3G compatability. Well, on a different note, Mac users are going to have access to the 3G network on their computers now. Sprint and Novatel have developed an card compatable with ExpressCard/34 called the Merlin EX720. It allows for a average download speeds of up to 600 Kbps - 1.4 Mbps and average upload speeds of 350-500 Kbps. When it ships, the drivers for Mac OS X will come along with it, and it will cost a hefty $179.99 with a contract.
