ThinkPad Goes Cellular

The latest ThinkPad notebooks from Lenovo — the Z-Series — offer small business owners and employees yet another way to stay connected while on the road: integrated high-speed EV-DO Wireless WAN (WWAN).

In English that translates as the Verizon Wireless network that lets you connect to the Internet at speeds somewhere between 400 and 700 kbps and, in theory, approximating DSL speeds, but your mileage will definitely vary.

The Z-Series notebooks offer a plethora of wireless connection options: EV-DO, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, Bluetooth and modem — good news for mobile workers for whom connection to the home office is crucial and who may not always be able to find a handy, or secure, Wi-Fi hotspot.

All ThinkPad notebooks come with the ThinkVantage software utilities, which include Access Connections, a program that adjusts your wireless connections — automatically — letting you move from Wi-Fi to Ethernet to EV-DO without having to make any manual adjustments.
