Mobile broadband a confirmed yes!February 13, 2009
Pandora team member DJWillis has confirmed through his own tests that mobile broadband works on Pandora hardware, and should be a matter of plug and play on production units. Want all the dirty details? Then it’s a happy day for you; DJ documented his journey in a recent blog post. For those in a hurry, here’s the magic paragraph:
So, what does this all prove. Well Mobile Broadband sticks (at least the Huawei E220) will work on the Pandora, NetworkManager is happy to configure the connection and as soon as I can get the NetworkManager 0.7.0 GUI going this whole process should be ‘plug and play’ just like it is on other major distributions like Ubuntu.
