OQO formally announces model e2 with HSDPA

OQO model e2

Late Monday, we found out about the latest OQO model, the e2 with embedded HSDPA mobile broadband capability for the European and Asian markets. The model e2 with embedded mobile broadband supports data access through UMTS/HSDPA at 2100MHz, and is downward compatible with GPRS/EDGE networks at 900MHz and 1800MHz. Download speeds of up to 3.6 Mbps are supported. The product is available SIM-free and network unlocked, allowing customers maximum flexibility in selecting their preferred wireless operator and data plan. The new e2 also supports tri-band wide-area wireless, 802.11 a/b/g Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 2.0 connectivity.

Other than that, the specs are pretty much the same as existing models. You can choose from options like a 1.5 or 1.6GHz VIA processor as well as 32GB SSD and 80GB or 120GB hard drives.

The model e2 with embedded HSDPA is now available for £1099 from a number of international distributors and resellers.
