The AirCard 402 is a PC Card that offers the convenience of switching to the ExpressCard form factor whenever required. By offering both PC and ExpressCard form factors in a single device, Sierra Wireless spares customers the expense of purchasing a new mobile broadband device when they upgrade their notebook computers.
The AirCard 402 data card is compact and can be safely stored in the computer’s PC Card slot or ExpressCard slot for quick and easy Internet access. The AirCard 402 data card is designed for EV-DO Rev.A networks, offering high-speed data connections of up to 3.1mbps on the downlink and up to 1.8mbps on the uplink. Through Sierra Wireless TRU-Locate, a built-in global positioning system, users can quickly establish location for local searches and navigation.
The AirCard 402 is scheduled to ship in the second quarter of this year.
