Windows 7 will do for 3G what Windows XP did for Wi-Fi, namely make it ubiquitous, Microsoft revealed at CTIA Wireless 2009. Robbie Bach indicated that such a scenario would be made possible through the intimate integration of Windows 7 with netbook computers. Gian Wilson demonstrated Windows 7 running on a new HP Mini 1000 Vivienne Tam edition netbook PC, with the Qualcomm Gobi 3G module embedded. With such a configuration, users only need to introduce a 3G sim card and activate their mobile broadband, Wilson explained. In this regard, Microsoft underlined that it had aimed to make the connecting experience as simple as possible. “Now we wanted to make this super easy. One click, you can see all of the wireless networks that are available. Two clicks, and you can connect. If you think back to Windows XP, what Windows XP did to propel the ubiquity of Wi-Fi, Windows 7 is going to do for 3G,” Wilson added.
