Novatel Wireless launches new HSDPA/HSUPA products. No support replies yet

Yes, I will keep complaining about this one... Novatel Wireless just issued a press release about their wonderful new line of HSDPA/HSUPA PC cards and Express cards:

Novatel Wireless, Inc. (Nasdaq:NVTL), a leading provider of wireless broadband access solutions, today introduced new, next-generation offerings in its high-speed download packet access/high-speed upload packet access (HSDPA/HSUPA) family of mobile broadband access products. The family of products includes the Merlin X950D ExpressCard, the Ovation MC870D HSDPA USB Modem, the Expedite® EU870D embedded modules and the XUA-1 ExpressCard to USB Adapter.

Introducing new technologies like HSUPA, as well as diversity, equalization and GPS, simplifying installation and designing new form factors for ease-of-use, highly differentiates Novatel Wireless as a company that is tracking the evolving needs of users, OEMs and network operators, and mapping product innovation to those requirements, said Brad Weinert, acting CEO and COO of Novatel Wireless. We will continue to deliver innovative products to the market that support our operators and OEMs increasing requirements, while continuing to offer added value by developing software solutions that take our devices to a new level of functionality for the user.

The Merlin X950D ExpressCard is a next-generation global, tri-band HSUPA and quad-band EDGE/GPRS wireless modem. The card can be used in both ExpressCard/34 and 54 slots as well as with Novatel Wireless adapters in PCMCIA and USB slots. Unique to the Merlin X950D, full 2.1 Mbps HSUPA and HSDPA 7.2 Mbps is now a reality. A firmware upgrade will be available to deliver the full 2.1 Mbps HSUPA performance. Mobile users, worldwide, can now enjoy full 3.5G capability in their wireless computing devices as well as utilize the GPS capability offered in the ExpressCard.



I am glad to see their R&D department works fine. It is a shame the Novatel Wireless support is not able to reply a simple question submited through their supports forms, with confirmation e-mail delivered to me.

Shame Vodafone had to use these guys, instead of going with Sierra Wireless, who announced full support for Windows Vista, including WHQL signed drivers ready for all current Sierra Wireless EV-DO cards.
