The Sony Vaio T350 includes built-in WWAN technology enabling high-speed Internet access via Cingular’s network.

Wireless Wide Area Network availability occupies the center of the Sony T350 experience. The new laptop from Sony will be able to access Cingular’s National EDGE network, without a cable.

An Intel Pentium M with Centrino 1.20 GHz processor with a 2 MB L2 cache delivers the computing power. And the optical drive supports CD and DVD read/write functions.

But it’s the EDGE capabilities that set the T350 apart from a typical wireless 802.11b/g experience. EDGE offers a faster rate and doesn’t have to be as close to a WiFi hotspot to deliver connectivity.

Sony lists the T350 as a pre-order item on its web site, with a list price of $2,199 USD. The laptop takes another step toward real mobility, but rates like Cingular’s $80 per month for unlimited nationwide access probably need to come down by half before the market embraces the EDGE more fully.
