BlueMobility’s kit provides an integrated solution for Mac-toting road warriors for whom WiFi spots just aren’t enough. The company supports digital phone-based networking capabilities for more than 20 different telephones that connect to your PowerBook or iBook through Bluetooth or a USB cable, as well as PC Card interfaces for thusly equipped PowerBook models.
BlueMobility offers coverage through Sprint’s PCS network throughout the United States. The company claims that Sprint’s network covers more than 750,000 square milles across the United States. Sprint’s PCS network utilizes CDMA technology for both voice and data; speeds average 60-90Kbps in real-world usage.

The company offers details on pricing, and provides several different pricing plans based on the features you’ll require.
