Sprint Overdrive

MiFi be darned - the Sprint Overdrive is coming to town. 

As a result of the 4G WiMAX rollouts taking place across the country, internal training has begun for what is said to be a dual WiMAX/EVDO portable hotspot.  The Sierra-made unit is said to offer a microSD card slot, support for location services, and a 100 foot range.  Pricing and availability is unknown, but with CES coming next week, I'm sure we'll hear more about it. 

4G WiMAX internet with 3G as a backup.  Sounds good to me!
