Our readers are so astute, that I bet they are wondering, where is that Tri-Network Hostpot unveiled at CES last January with the GNex and the Viper? When is it going to hit the street? Well wonder no more!
Sprint 4G Rollout Updates has learned that Sprint is intending to release the Sierra Wireless Tri-Network Hotspot on Friday, May 18th. This device is unique from other hotspots because it runs on three networks, 4G LTE, 4G WiMax and 3G EVDO. This hotspot will be a must for those Sprint customers needing mobile WiFi connectivity everywhere they go.
Given the current evolution from 4G WiMax to 4G LTE, it will be very versatile for any type of signal you encounter on the Now Network. A great device to bridge the transition in 4G technologies. You can even use it to turn your iPhone 4S into a 4G device. Just hook up your iPhone to the hotspot, and you will have 4G speeds anytime you are in a Sprint LTE or WiMax coverage area.
This Tri-Network Hotspot is designed to search for 4G LTE first, then WiMax, then 3G EVDO. And at intervals, it will scan for another network to see if it can locate an even faster signal than the one it is connected to. It supports up to 8 simultaneous connections, has a range up to 150' and even offers 32GB of storage on board.
Pricing information is still unknown at this time.
