Palo Alto -- HP and Cingular Wireless today announced availability of the first notebook PC in the United States to feature built-in global mobile broadband capabilities.

The HP Compaq nc6400 Notebook PC with integrated Cingular Wireless UMTS/HSDPA-based technology allows business professionals to connect in more areas at broadband speeds to corporate networks, email and the Internet without being tied to a wireless hotspot.

Customers can now enjoy the benefits of mobile broadband both in the United States - either with Cingular Wireless BroadbandConnect or high-speed EDGE services - and abroad in more than 115 countries in which there are UMTS or GPRS/EDGE networks available. The HP Compaq nc6400 is the first notebook with a tri-band UMTS modem supporting data rates of up to 3.6 megabits per second in the United States and in many countries around the world.

The notebook's design gives customers the flexibility to purchase the nc6400 and later upgrade to Cingular Wireless' 3G network by adding an HP Broadband Wireless Module.

The nc6400 comes with integrated high-performance dual-antennas and Cingular Communication Manager to establish a convenient and reliable wireless connection via Cingular's 3G network.

HP and Cingular Wireless will jointly market the new business notebook.

Wireless LAN and Bluetooth(TM) wireless technology complement the notebook's convenient mobile broadband technology. The thin and light nc6400 also features a 14.1-inch diagonal widescreen display, an optional HP Privacy Filter that helps ensure the screen is visible only to the user, powerful Intel Core(TM) 2 Duo processors and support of 3D graphics to deliver the optimal balance of connectivity and performance.

The nc6400 is Microsoft Windows Vista(TM) capable. Additionally, it features HP Professional Innovations, a suite of hardware features and software solutions that includes technologies such as integrated biometrics and digital accelerometers designed to enhance security, improve ease of use and help ensure reliability.

The nc6400 with integrated UMTA/HSDPA-based technology is the latest result of HP's alliance with Cingular Wireless. Most recently, HP and Cingular introduced the HP iPAQ hw6900 series Mobile Messenger with built-in GPS.

Availability and pricing

The HP Compaq nc6400 Notebook PC with integrated Cingular Wireless BroadbandConnect is expected to be available in late December at a starting price of $1,599. HP nc6400 customers can get monthly unlimited Cingular BroadbandConnect service for $59.99. International plans also are available. A North American plan of 100 megabytes for $109 per month provides for usage in Canada and Mexico, as well as unlimited domestic data. Cingular's global plan of 100 megabytes for $139 a month covers data usage in more than two dozen countries worldwide, as well unlimited use in the United States.
