3G modems that connect to your notebook via USB are nothing new, but Orange's <a href="http://www.business.orange.co.uk/servlet/Satellite?pagename=Business&c=OUKDevice&cid=1044136297758">Orange's Option ICON2</a> is different not only in looks but also in its support of 7.2Mbps connections. Should you get excited about the high speed? Only if you don’t mind buying now in order to reap the benefits in the future.

T-Mobile web'n'walk USB modem

T-Mobile web'n'walk USB modem

<p>Towards the end of last year, we reviewed <a title="Vodafone Mobile Connect USB Modem" href="http://reviews.zdnet.co.uk/hardware/networking/0,1000000697,39284799,00.htm?r=1">Vodafone's USB 3G modem</a>. By contrast with other PC Card-based modems, this was a plug-and-play device that was simplicity itself to use, which was enough to earn it an Editors' Choice award. Not to be outdone, T-Mobile has launched a rival. As more notebooks begin to incorporate SIM card slots, the long-term value of separate modems may be limited. But&nbsp;if you don't have&nbsp;built-in SIM support, the plug-and-play approach has immediate appeal.</p>
