GlobeTrotter To Feed Your Mac's ExpressCard Slot with 7.2Mbps HSDPA

As much as you love your MacBook Pro, chances are its ExpressCard slot has been having plenty of dateless nights. Well, its time has finally come cause Option's GlobeTrotter 7.2 is looking to slide right in there. The card is the first ExpressCard to support the upcoming 7.2Mbps speed increase of HSDPA. Starting January, Cingular will be one of the first providers to support the new speed (which nearly doubles the current HSDPA speed) and the Option card will be able to take full advantage of it. It'll detect UMTS, EDGE, and GPRS standards and connect to the fastest. Pricing is still up in the air, but the card is expected to work with Macs and PCs, which is welcome news for all those lonely ExpressCard slots out there.
