As you may recall, Sony’s latest VAIO P series is packaged with the Gobi chipset which is more than capable of running on both HSDPA and EV-DO for connectivity. Unfortunately, Sony (just US?) has chosen to block HSDPA access and has locked the super lightweight, pocketable notebook to connecting only via a Verizon Wireless EV-DO connection. But now, thanks to blogger tnkgrl, Sony’s restrictive plans are now virtually non-existent and those without a VZW contract will not have any problems at all when looking to connect via HSDPA. Tnkgrl has successfully hacked the HSDPA on the VAIO P, allowing it to be utilized by those not afraid to void a warranty on the $900 machine.
