Cingular Builds into Lenovo; Verizon into HP

By Glenn Fleishman

Certain Lenovo ThinkPads will have built-in Cingular UMTS and HSDPA starting in March: The laptop maker builds on its earlier announcement of an Verizon EVDO modem. This is the latest in a series of agreements among cell operators and laptop makers (Dell, HP, and Lenovo, notably) to incorporate unactivated cell data modems into gear.

Buyers of high-end equipment won’t necessarily pay extra to get a model with integrated cell data. They’re more likely to activate it, of course, than if they had to spend $100 to $250 to get a PC Card, manage its driver separately, go to the operator for technical support, and not get a deal for trying it out.

Update: On Thursday, HP revealed something they’ve been whispering about for two months: Verizon EVDO will be built into its Compaq nc6140. It’s just $1,400.
