Synchronoss Technologies Inc. of Bridgewater has stated that it partnered with Xandros for a plan to activate netbooks for mobile broadband service.
The company is known for its at-home user activation software for iPhones. It is now using the ConvergenceNow Plus platform to manipulate Xandros netbook software solutions. Synchronoss explained that incorporating its software in netbooks already outfitted with Xandros programs will allow users to achieve wireless data access through the cloud with any available broadband carrier.
For now it’s unclear how this will affect netbook plans by Verizon or AT&T, but we’ll have more information as it comes out.
