This is a brand NEW and ORIGINAL Sony Ericsson GC89 EDGE/GPRS/Wifi PCMCIA card for use with mobile notebooks. This card is able to work with GSM Band 850/900/1800/1900, meaning it can be be used in many countries across Asia, Europe and USA using international roaming.
In order to use EDGE all that is required is a notebook, DIGI (or other EDGE operators if any) SIM mobile card with EDGE that's active. Set-up Sony Ericsson Mobile connect software. Insert the mobile SIM card to the Sony Ericsson PCMCIA data card and then insert both into the notebook PCMCIA slot. Done!
If EDGE is not available then this card will automatically detect GPRS and runs on GPRS, albeit on a much faster speed. As such this datacard also works with Celcom or Maxis.
The market price for the Sony Ericsson GC-89 is over RM1000. It's a very robust and good quality datacard.
