OQO2 gets HSDPA upgrade

Chris Davies - May 6, 2007

We already know that Vincent loves the OQO2, but I’ve a sneaking suspicion that the one thing stopping him from proposing to the diminutive UMPC-a-like is the lack of HSDPA high-speed cellular broadband.  Well, tnkgrl has not only got an OQO2 but has already voided the warranty by proving that it’s eminently possible to swap out the existing EVDO card for a Cingular HSDPA alternative.

Future OQO2 models will have HSDPA as an option, we’re promised, but if you’re unable – or unwilling – to wait then this straightforward looking proof-of-concept should give you some hope.
