Lenovo to provide options for cellular broadband connectivity

Lenovo is now offering options to add wireless broadband connectivity rate plans on ThinkPad T60 notebooks over EDGE and BroadbandConnect networks.

Lenovo ThinkPad T60's will be available, though we're not sure when, with the option to add wireless WAN connectivity with Cingular Data Connect plans starting at $59.99 a month. The configuration page for the T60, however, only shows the Verizon Wireless V620 Wireless WAN Card option with no mention of Cingular.

If you remember anything from 2005, Lenovo got together with Verizon Wireless to integrate Verizon's Wireless WAN connectivity over the EV-DO network in some of its notebooks. Until now it looked like an exclusive contract between the two but the T60 product page currently shows different. Could this be the end of Verizon+Lenovo for now or the beginning of a new triangle of wireless broadband love?

That's just another thing someone has to buy and maintain. Thinkpads are aimed towards busy business professionals who don't want hassle or complication, and money is not as much of a consideration as it is to you. They want a solid all-in-one package that does everything they need with little compromise, and if/when it doesn't work the way its supposed to, they have one number to call to get it fixed ASAP. Try to do that with your solution.

True. I should have read your post a bit more carefully specially the "some" part, before the word "people".
