Qualcomm announced that its Gobi 3000
technology is enabling a new form of pay-as-you-go mobile broadband data
service in laptops from HP.
The pay-as-you-go data plan is known
as HP DataPass, and it will bring mobile broadband to the consumer who
wants access to the Internet when occasionally travelling away from the home or
office but does not need a regular service contract.
“Our Gobi technology is enabling
advanced mobile data services on PC and tablet products from top-tier OEMs.
Innovative pay-as-you-go plans like HP DataPass will provide network operators
with new and untapped channels of service and deliver mobile broadband to a
broader set of end users,” said Fram Akiki, senior director of
product management for Qualcomm.
In the business world, these plans would
complement existing corporate contracts and give IT managers a more flexible
enterprise mobility solution to meet the needs of the employee on the go.
Qualcomm’s Gobi technology provides
embedded connectivity solutions for all major carrier networks worldwide. The
solution features the Gobi Application Programming Interface (API) combined
with industry leading modem chipsets to help spur innovation in mobile
broadband connectivity for PC and tablet OEMs.
Recently, Qualcomm announced the expansion of its 100+ games Snapdragon GamePack and
launch of a new showcase application called Snapdragon GameCommand. The
Snapdragon GameCommand app provides gamers with a source for the latest gaming
news from some of the most popular gaming news sites.
