Franklin CDU-550 Supports Linux

Franklin Wireless announced that their CDU-550 USB Modem now supports Windows Mobile and Linux. This allows a single EVDO device to support just about every major operating system currently available.

Apple built support for the Franklin CDU-550 directly in Mac OS X (EVDO support started with 10.4.7). Of course, the Franklin Connection Manager that is included with the CDU-550 supports Windows XP Service Pack 2.

Many Linux users have struggled to get other EVDO cards working, but the CDU-550 is the first EVDO card that actually embraces Linux users.
