OQO2 gets HSDPA upgrade

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,


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.
