Macs get Super 3G-iggy with it

We were promised last year that it would and now Vodafone has finally invited Apple Macs to the Super 3G party.Since most Macs and some Windows laptops don't have PC card slots they've been excluded by the red giant's datacard. Now, as a reward for such patience, we're getting this rather stylish external modem.It'll offer the same blistering 1.8Mbps speeds that we clocked with the card but will plug in via a handy USB slot. Old school USB 1.1 users will have to plug in two ports - one for the data and the other for power - but USB 2.0 bods will find a single cable all they need.3.5G is largely limited to within the M25 and the shining metropolises of Sheffield, Greater Manchester, Tyneside and Glasgow, so It'll piggy back on standard 3G or even lowly GPRS as coverage drops. Vodafone do say it's expanding every week and promises us full super 3G across its third generation network by next summer - just in time for our hols.
