Fujitsu Siemens' 3G laptop lineup

Fujitsu Siemens Computers has introduced a new range of professional notebooks, all of which have integrated 3G connectivity.

The Esprimo series of laptops, which will go on sale in August, has three models, ranging from the 12.1-inch U9200 ultraportable to the 15.4-inch D9500 desktop replacement model. All are based on Intel Core 2 Duo chipsets and feature wide screens.

Dieter Herzog, executive vice president of infrastructure products at Fujitsu Siemens, said the Esprimo notebooks are "tailor-made for business people who do not want to lose out on any office comforts while traveling"--a feature made possible by the machines' integration of 3G connectivity.

Notebooks with integrated 3G have become more common over the past year and, at one point, the technology was even due to be included in Intel's Santa Rosa processing platform. However, talks between Intel and Nokia broke down, leaving the inclusion of such technology up to individual computer manufacturers. Intel is widely expected to include mobile WiMax connectivity instead in the next generation of its chipsets.

In March, Fujitsu Siemens Chief Executive Bernd Bischoff announced that his company would at some point have 3G connectivity in all its notebook computers.

David Meyer of ZDNet UK reported from London.

dell has 3g already built in
I believe the dell xps m1330 has 3g built in already. It looks to be one of the best laptop in the market IMHO.
