Sony Integrates Cingular EDGE in Vaio Notebook

Sony introduced a VAIO T-Series notebook PC featuring integrated connectivity for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and access to Cingular's nationwide EDGE network, which deliver typical downlink speeds of 70-130 kbps. The notebook uses a combination of hardware and software to automatically links the notebook to the Cingular network when outside the reach of wired networks or hotspots.

Sony customers are given a 30 day trial of Cingular's Wireless WAN Service when they sign up through Sony for a Data Connect plan of $49.99 with a two-year service agreement, or the $79.99 Unlimited Data Connect plan with a one-year service agreement. When customers sign up for the $79.99 Unlimited Data Connect plan with a two-year agreement through Sony, customers receive 60 days of free service.
