Ericsson has unveiled a new broadband module with the aim of providing a more cost-efficient and user-friendly experience. The F3607gw mobile-broadband module for HSPA/GPRS/EDGE networks is slated to be released in June and will offer three distinct features, reports eWeek.
The module supports Windows 7 and features reduced power consumption and prolonged battery life. In addition, Ericsson's new module has a wake-on-wireless feature that allows a laptop or netbook to sleep until important messages or security updates are sent to the device. It also allows users to remotely wake up their device to administer security functions in the case it is lost or stolen. The technology can also be used in unison with the module's embedded GPS capabilities to offer remote services.
According to Engadget, Dell, LG, Lenovo and Toshiba have signed on as customers with products forthcoming during the second-half of 2009.
