QuickLink Mobile is a data connectivity solution that provides access to e-mail, file uploads/downloads, Web surfing and corporate Intranets without being plugged in a network or modem line connection. Mac users of the product who have a PowerBook G4 will soon be able to connect wirelessly to the Internet with a Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone without the need for a tethered cable.
12-inch and 17-inch PowerBooks introduced
in January at the Macworld Conference & Expo in San Francisco have built-in Bluetooth support. Bluetooth is also available to other Mac users with a USB adapter, available from Apple and elsewhere.
QuickLink Mobile includes a setup assistant that automatically detects the mobile phone, the computer’s operating system settings, and your high-speed mobile account settings from your carrier’s account.
What’s more, the upcoming version of QuickLink Mobile Mac supports Sprint PCS’ 1xRTT high-speed data network. Mac users will be able to surf the Internet, check e-mail or access their corporate Intranets on the enhanced Sprint Nationwide PCS Network. (QuickLink Mobile Mac already operates with wireless data networks provided by Verizon Wireless, Cingular Wireless, TELUS Mobility in Canada, AT&T Wireless Inc., Nextel Communications Inc., and T-Mobile.)
QuickLink Mobile Mac with Bluetooth and enhanced Sprint support is due in the second quarter of the year. It will have a suggested retail price of US$39.95.
