Windows device driver information for SAMSUNG_X490 GSM Modem

The SAMSUNG_X490 GSM Modem is used for Samsung GSM mobile phones. In principle, these devices make use of ISDN connections and can therefore sub-serve the Internet connections through the conventional ISP or Information Service Providers or send and receive faxes. To use a mobile phone with a computer, a connecting cable is required. GSM mobile phones such as the SAMSUNG_X490 GSM Modem may also be used with a PCMCIA card with modem-like capabilities. In some instances, GSM mobile phones come with a ready accessory or built-in infrared interface that meet the IrDA standard. This allows a laptop that comes with an IrDA port to become capable of communicating with the mobile phone within a certain IR beam range. The SAMSUNG_X490 GSM Modem is not really a modem in the traditional sense since the phone it is attached to does not perform the audio modulation/demodulation.
