Euro Ready Modems

EURO-READY MODEMS

Travelers who take their laptops abroad may be breaking the law whenever they plug modems into the local phone system. And while the chances of legal hassles are slight, a modem designed for U.S. phones may have problems on foreign systems.

TDK Systems (916 478-8421), best known in the U.S. for magnetic tapes and disks, offers a solution. Its V.34 Euro-Class credit-card-style fax modem offers 28,400-bit-per-second data transmissions and meets telephone system requirements in all major industrial countries. TDK expects that the modem, due out this spring, will carry a list price of about $550, $50 or so more than the North American version.BY STEPHEN H. WILDSTROM
