Apple Job Listing Suggests Possible Plans to Add 3G Wireless to Macs?
The Comms Software QA team within the Mac Hardware Group is seeking a motivated QA engineer to perform quality assurance testing for new Apple CPU Products.
Duties for this position include, but are not limited to:
- Testing and reporting hardware, software, and device driver bugs for Communications technologies including AirPort (802.11a/b/g/n), Bluetooth v2.0, gigabit Ethernet, and/or 3G Wireless WAN in a detailed, timely manner.
While it is possible that the job duties described in the listing may be referring to testing of third-party 3G cards, there has been speculation that built-in 3G connectivity could make an appearance in future notebook revisions.
AT&T has also been exploring the possibility of subsidizing notebooks with 3G connectivity and has said they would like to work with Apple.
