Verizon Wireless officially launched its 3G 1xRTT 'Express Network' today. The new network covers 20 percent of Verizon's footprint, including the northeast, San Francisco, and Salt Lake City. Although initially offered with unlimited usage, per-minute pricing will debut in March, followed by optional per-kilobyte pricing in the future. Intial equipment options consist of either the Sierra Wireless AirCard 555 PC Card ($299.99), or the Kyocera 2235 phone ($79.99), which requires the separate Mobile Office kit for connection to the Express Network (also $79.99). Verizon also announced an alliance with Accenture to provide integrated mobile solutions for enterprise customers.
