By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 3 comments

AT&T is offering a new HSPA 7.2-capable network card with a unique 2-in-1 design.

Tuesday AT&T announced the availability of the latest addition to its LaptopConnect portfolio, the Sierra Wireless AirCard 890. This High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) 7.2-capable device features a 2-in-1 form factor that supports both PCMCIA (PC Card) and ExpressCard slots. It also provides built-in GPS functionality, enabling location-based services.

AT&T said that the AirCard 890 will ship with AT&T's Global Network Client (AGNC), allowing for a highly secure connection to AT&T's VPN Services. "AGNC offers a single connection client that makes standardization easier and enables access to corporate networks, including mobile data networks, Wi-Fi and broadband," the company added.

The card will become available on May 5, costing $49.99 after a mail-in rebate and signing a two-year contract for AT&T's DataConnect service. The contract itself starts at $35 per month, however AT&T is offering a promotion that offers a $100 AT&T Promotion Card after shelling out $149.99 up front.

    anamaniacLet us buy 2G/3G/4G etc. items for reasonable prices without fucking contracts!I bet these cost $25 to make, so stop raping the consumer. Your data plans already do that.

    Nice language, go get some soap for that mouth.
