Dell and HP announced they would launch personal computing products that would support China’s third generation (3G) mobile technology, TD-SCDMA, IDG Business News reported. Dell’s Inspiron Mini 10 and HP’s Mini 1000, both of which are netbooks, will be launched in China with built-in TD-SCDMA data cards. China Mobile, the world’s largest mobile carrier and operator of China’s TD-SCDMA network, will subsidize the netbooks by offering consumers up to US$205 in free internet use. China Mobile is experimenting with ways to attract customers to its TD-SCDMA network, which has struggled in garnering users due in large part to a small selection of mobile phone handsets that operate on the standard, analysts said.
