This morning, Lenovo announced that they will now offer its ThinkPad tablets with the Qualcomm Gobi 3000 chipset, allowing for connectivity on any network in the world via GSM and CDMA. You will still need to have a data plan provisioned by the carrier in the area that you want service, but at least you can be a jet setter without switching between multiple devices. The following quote pretty much sums it up, but if you want to read the whole press release, join us after the jump.
The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet will now offer Qualcomm’s Gobi™ 3000 technology, making it the first Android tablet that gives enterprise customers a single mobile platform for use throughout the world. The new offering eliminates the need to change hardware to support different carriers or mobile connectivity standards from region to region. With Gobi 3000 technology, ThinkPad Tablet users can easily connect to any major US carrier and stay connected with global roaming support when business brings them overseas.
