In a bid to lead the evolving convergence of computing and communications devices, Dell and Verizon Wireless have teamed up to allow Dell customers to purchase and activate the Verizon Wireless V620 PC card directly from Dell.

U.S. mobile customers will now be able to access the Internet, e-mail and store critical data on their Dell notebooks using Verizon wireless' evolution-data optimized (EV-DO) broadband network. The companies will test and validate the V620 on Inspiron and Latitude notebooks. In addition, Dell and Verizon will continue to drive new wireless initiatives, including the integration of mobile broadband capabilities into Dell notebook computers beginning next year.

The V620 PC card supports EV-DO network technology, providing average speeds of 400-700kbps, access to e-mail, intranet, corporate applications and full Web browsing.

Alex Gruzen, SVP in Dell's product group, said, "Dell has been driving wireless integration into our notebook products and we intend to accelerate our mobile computing business by enabling wireless broadband across our product line. The Dell direct model is capable of putting the technology and wireless service in customers' hands. Before long, it will be a basic assumption that one can access critical information anytime, anywhere, with the speed and rich content that we have all come to expect. Dell's market-leading notebooks will be at the forefront of that trend."
