Is GOBI good for Tablet PC users?

Gobi is built-in wireless broadband that, along with a SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card, allows you to connect to the internet on a carrier's cellular network.

The advantage of Gobi for tablet PC owners is that it is built-in so there is nothing to connect and no extra device to lose. Also, you can use a SIM card from any carrier so if you travel a lot you can have a connection to the best network.

The disadvantage is that since the hardware is built-in there is no way to upgrade it when faster technology becomes available. Also, you can't share with another computer like you could with a USB Broadband device. Last, to take advantage of multiple carrier networks, you need multiple SIM cards and a cellular data plan with each carrier - very expensive except for the most intense road warriors.

Here is a link to the Gobi website:
