Lenovo and Sprint have Announced that they have teamed up to offer Lenovo buyers access to Sprint 3G and 4G modems inside ThinkPad notebooks. Sprint still offers relatively few 4G enabled areas, but if you happen to live in one this is good news.
“Adding Sprint to our network of supported carriers gives customers even more 3G choice and expanded connectivity points with the fast speeds of Sprint 4G,” said Dilip Bhatia, executive director, ThinkPad Product Marketing, Lenovo. “Demand for constant, fast wireless technology has become an expectation, and it’s now mission critical for doing business today.”
Lenovo doesn't offer pricing or specific models that will have 4G available. The laptops equipped with the 3G and 4G capability will come with the SIM card preloaded and laptop connection software ready to go. The software will allow both 3G and 4G connectivity depending on network availability.
