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?

With the $20 dollar plan for datalinks, there is a limited download. It says unlimited on the plan because it means only to the phone which will mean that surfing will consume very little bandwidth. Supposedly, the companies will charge you if you are downloading big files because they know that you cannot possible download 50Mb a month to only a phone. The $60 plans are truly unlimited.
