Are you on 3G yet?

Do you need to work online while on the move? Are you tired of snooping around for WiFi hotspots?

Do you need to work online while on the move? Are you tired of snooping around for WiFi hotspots? Is your Blackberry giving you headaches with its tiny screen size and limited support for file attachments?

The answer to a truly mobile workforce, I discovered, is 3G. I carry my Merlin 3G data card plugged into my Sony Vaio laptop everywhere I go, even in the office.

%IMAGE=Merlin3G.jpg%It gives me good Internet connectivity (roughly 200kbps) everywhere I go, even as I'm speeding in a cab on the expressway.

Although I'm mostly based in Singapore, I have used 3G data access in far exotic places like Bahrain.

Right now I'm blogging to you from Macau, where I'm participating in the Asia-Pacific ICT Awards (APICTA) competition. There's no 3G network here yet, but the Merlin 3G data card automatically switches to GPRS, and I can still have a decent Internet connection for working overseas.

So what are you waiting for? 3G is here to give you the freedom to work everywhere.
