Short Take: 3Com revs PC card modem

3Com will soon ship a PC card modem for notebooks and cell phones. The modem, usable with phone systems throughout the world, features a more durable Xjack connector, which lets people plug their phoneline directly to the modem without using a dongle. The Xjack connectors can now be pulled out and snapped back on without breaking. The Megahertz 56K Global GSM Cellular Modem PC Card will ship in mid-July and cost $229.
