"Older" 12-inch Powerbook. Will a Verizon wireless card, i.e. V640, work with it? Any others?

From Terry's Tech Blog
Verizon Wireless V620 is here

And Novatel V640 - EVDO Express Card

From Mac EVDO
"Any PowerBook running Mac OS X 10.3.4 - 10.4.2 with a PC Slot (PowerBook 12 inch and iBook do not have PC Slots - so they will currently NOT work. However, there is a way to have another PowerBook with a slot share the EVDO connection over Airport , so that the PB12 or iBook can use EVDO (just not directly)."

This may be old news, you might want to scour the info on that site to see what may apply to you.

Is this a really old 12" like a 5300, 190, etc.? They had PCMCIA slots and can use the Orinoco cards. What system are you running?

There are USB EVDO solutions that should work on the PowerBook 12 inch. Check with these guys. They are great!
