Or, how I rewrote a press release...: I'm sorry to be so harsh about this, but this is the biggest non-story of the week. So Dell signs a deal with AT&T Wireless to let Dell customers use AT&T's cellular network at modem speeds? Users no longer have to hunt for a hot spot...unless they want something faster than maybe 50 Kbps and don't want to spend dollars per megabyte for data use? Ugh.
We'll see more of this, I'm sure. The cell industry is preying on reporters who don't have the bigger picture of what service is available and what services cost. Hot spots aren't necessarily an alternative to cell data networks, but this story makes it sound like it was ripped from a press release.
