Sony Ericsson unveils the MD400 and MD400g – the first HSPA USB modems of their kind from Sony Ericsson not only providing high speed broadband but also a combined M2 Memory Stick Micro and a microSD slot brought together in a compact design.
Apart from an built-in antenna, an innovative additional swivel antenna optimizes the performance when in use. When closed, it covers and protects the retractable USB connector.
The MD400g also has a built-in GPS receiver which automatically shows the user’s current location.
You can receive 7.2Mb/s in download and up to 2.0Mb/s in upload speeds.
This means that sending attachments via email such as images or video content can be sent up to five times faster than before.
