SAMBA 75 - USB GPRS/EDGE Modem


Samba 75
We talked about the SAMBA 3G CDMA/EV-DO modem almost exactly one year ago, yet there’s no indication that it ever saw the light of day.  What did get released was the SAMBA 75, a quad band GPRS/EDGE USB modem that fills a need, but falls a bit short of 3G glory.  It’s been out for a while now, but doesn’t exactly carry a high profile, which is really a shame.  When you look at the number of laptops that have eschewed CardBus in favor of ExpressCard, or that lack a PC card slot altogether, there’s definitely a market for a product of this nature. 

A quick peek at the basic specifications doesn’t reveal anything out of the ordinary.
• Integrated Quad Band GSM/GPRS/EDGE Engine
• SAMBA 75: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz
• Data, SMS, Fax, MMS, Downloads
• TCP/IP stack implemented
• Audio/Video streaming
• GPRS class 12, class B
• EDGE class 10, class B
• Integrated USB-Hub
• GSM antenna included
• USB serial link
• World-wide applicable

Current street pricing in the US places the SAMBA 75 at $197 USD.  Stay tuned as we’ll be doing a review of the SAMBA 75 in the near future.
