Kyocera this week is announcing the Passport, (model KPC-650,) the company's first PC card for laptops, and first CDMA EV-DO device. The card includes several advantages over EV-DO cards already on the market, such as the ability to maintain simultaneous 1xRTT and EV-DO connections, permitting seamless handoffs between the two network types. Other advantages include dual-band receive diversity, better SMS integration, and a more sensitive and rugged antenna. Thanks to the extensive optimizations, the card can acheive up to twice the real-world data rates compared to other cards on the market. The Passport is expected to be available by the end of the year.
