Till now, the UMPCs had the edge over the Netbooks in one area: most of them used to come with in-built 3G modem or HSDPA. The ASUS EEE PC 901 is the first netbook with built-in HSDPA!
With 3.75G, the Eee PC™ will be able to deliver on its promise of borderless one-day computing better than ever before. No longer bound to Internet hotspots, 3.75G-equipped Eee PC™ users will be able to enjoy low latency mobile broadband Internet access at high downlink and uplink speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps and 2 Mbps respectively, regardless of where they are—ensuring a seamless connected experience on the go.
It is really nice that ASUS has taken the initiative to be the first one to come with first 3.75G enabled netbook. It will let the people to enjoy high speed internet without lugging around that HSDPA dongle. :)
