Wireless Pocket PC's--Expensive Modems
The first wireless modem for the Pocket PC has arrived. It's called the Sierra Wireless AirCard 300. While wireless connectivity for this handheld device is a great enhancement, you should know a few things before you buy the AirCard 300 or any other wireless modem.
First, wireless modems are quite a bit more expensive than their wired brethren, at least for now. The AirCard 300 costs $299. Wired modems (for mobile devices) sell for half that price. You'll pay a high price for the freedom of wireless communication on your Pocket PC.
