USB EVDO

Samba is currently working on perfecting an EV-DO USB modem which would allow those who don’t want to purchase a PMCIA card to access an EV-DO networks to still get online using their laptop. Of course, if you have a 12-inch PowerBook like I do, then you don’t even have a slot to put the standard EV-DO card into.
