First GPRS PCMCIA Cards to Hit Market Soon
Posted: 18-Jul-2000 [Source: Mobile Computing]

[Get your notebooks ready. The GPRS cards are starting to arrive. ]

Leuven, Belgium -- "Just in time for the first GPRS (general packet radio service) networks now starting to appear on GSM networks across Europe, the first GPRS PCMCIA (personal computer memory card international association) cards are scheduled to arrive in the next few months.

"Option Internet, the Dutch mobile communications firm, has today struck a deal with BT Cellnet in the UK, which launched the world's first GPRS network in late June.

"A spokesperson for the firm said that the deal calls on Option to develop the world's first GPRS PCMCIA card for shipment by BT Cellnet to its customers in the fourth quarter of this year.

"Joshua Van Raalte, a spokesperson for BT Cellnet, said that the cards will sell for between 100 and 200 pounds ($150 and $300) when they ship - about the same levels as a standard GSM data card.

"The difference with GPRS, however, is that more network channel resources can be "daisy-chained" together to allow mobile downloads at speeds of up to 52,000 bits per second (bps) and uploads of up to 26,000 bps.
