3G Netbooks catch signals better than mobile phones

March 29, 2009 at 5:48 pm

Netbooks with integrated 3G modules are generally very quick to broadcast their own signals and offer good signal strength according to a recent study by ‘Connect’ magazine. It studied three netbooks for wireless data transfer and by far the fastest was the Acer Aspire One A150x 3G that has an in-built Qualcomm module. The Acer was even faster than 3G phones that have been available over the last two years. Even the Samsung NP- NC10 3G and LG X110 came out with above-average performance compared to the 3G mobile phones.

With many mobile operators now offering netbooks as part of subsidised data packages, there will come a point that most netbooks will have the ability to access the internet in our view. Whether that means 3G modules will be included in most models from the start or we start to see the adoption of ARM based netbooks that are always connected to a 3G network, this can only be a good thing, giving more choice to consumers.

    You are quite right Heather since you set us on the path to blogging, some 3 years ago, I have cnaeghd the way I think as an educator. I’m not sure if it was our global isolation which had me bursting with excitement to get into other classrooms, both within and outside of Australia or the fact that the technology seemed to be the logical, practical and most exciting direction for education to take. Either way, I have found myself collaborating with innovative teachers and classrooms in America, Guadaloupe, England, Darwin, Tasmania and others which escape me at the moment. I have been part of skype link ups with amazing people in Malaysia, Antarctica, Melbourne etc. I have joined in Elluminate sessions and wait for it have even HOSTED a session (well with enormous support from our resident guru Anne Mirtschin)on nuclear disarmament, which attracted participants from America, Canada and Spain. I no longer think about my tiny classroom and the limited resources we have within our school, as being limitations. I no longer think twice about contacting well known, famous people and asking them if they could speak to our students. I no longer consider our global isolation as a reason / excuse for us, to abstain from any subject or activity. I recently read a blog post ( which stated we should be teaching students for their future, not our past, and my mind is constantly whirring with ideas and projects which will require students to collaborate, cooperate, think critically, contribute, converse and connect with students on a local, national and international level. Thank you for opening the door of endless possibilities, for me as an educator. Thank you for having the courage to encourage educators to move outside their comfort zones and to embrace the exciting world of technology which swirls around us all day, every day, in every way. You rock!

    I’m reading this with all the focus on birth mothers, but what about the men (and boys) who get women (and girls) pregnant? What about sperm donors?Family has been redefined. It’s time to move beyond feeling like the people who participated in our conception owe us rights. Yes, all people deserve to know the truth about their genetic background–as much as it can be known. Even if you have your genetic family tree back 20 generations, there will be questions–it’s biology.Children/adults who grew up in adoptive families have rights. Of course. Those rights end at knowing the truth of the situation, not names.
