The Merlin XU870 HSDPA 7.2 ExpressCard offers the flexibility of both HSDPA and UMTS in tri-band 2100/1900/850 MHz and in quad-band EDGE/GPRS 850/900/1800/1900 MHz capability. The XU870 ExpressCard provides high-speed connectivity to HSDPA networks with data speeds up to 3.6 Mbps and ultimately 7.2 Mbps, with a software upgrade. It has an integrated antenna system design that incorporates an external flip antenna, maximizing data speed performance and allows for stronger network signal reception.
Of course we only have 3.6Mbps and 1.8Mbps HSDPA here in New Zealand, but Vodafone promised an upgrade to 7.2Mbps for 2007. Let's just wait and see!
In the meantime, I will take this card to the mall where I tested the AirCard 850 and the vodem before, to compare speeds.
UPDATE: You should check my XU870 speed test...
