Intel to Back SIM Cards for Laptops

With 3G (supposedly) coming up quickly here in the US, it's nice to know that Intel is thinking fast on its feet and talking about equipping future laptops with a SIM card slot to add easy WAN connectivity.

The idea was launched by the GSM Association (GSMA) and Intel plans on working with them to develop guidelines for manufacturers intent on incorporating 3G support as well as the next-generation High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) technology. Now if we could just get that 3G up and running, I'd be happy to discuss the rest of it.
