AT&T adds 2 new LaptopConnect devices sporting GPS & speed
AT&T customers still holding tight to their current LaptopConnect devices may want to check out the two new models making their way onto AT&T's lineup. The USBConnect Velocity from Option is the first AT&T LaptopConnect device that features a much welcomed built-in GPS to allow users to work with location based services such as Yahoo Maps and Microsoft's Bing search engine. As far as being able to keep track of wandering employees, enterprise users can opt to use something like TeleNav Track Lite and Xora GPS Locator to check up on field employees and make sure they're at the location they say they are. The second device is the USBConnect Turbo which is manufactured by LG and features some blazing connections with 7.2Mbps HSPA connectivity all packed in its slim form factor. Fortunately, both units adds some memory expandability for users by acting as a USB storage device via its built-in microSD slot. Another plus for AT&T customers is that these devices won't be too costly – the Turbo will be made available for free after rebates while the Velocity will set you back a mere $29.99 after all rebates are concerned.
