Good news for Dell fans: Dell is planning to embed Vodafone’s 3G wireless broadband technology in notebook PCs sold in the UK, France, and Germany. The agreement represents the latest in a series of similar deals between Dell and wireless operators rolling out 3G networks.

“This serves as supplemental wireless broadband connectivity, especially for business travelers who may not have the time to look for a hotspot, or who are racking up Wi-Fi access fees after several days on the road,” said Dell spokesperson Anne Camden.

Other manufacturers, including Lenovo, HP , and Sony, also are offering built-in 3G network connectivity in their laptops in the hope of targeting enterprise customers who are looking to mobile computing as a way to boost productivity.
