Sierra Wireless USB Cards

Shortly after the Sprint announcement of enhanced EVDO Rev. A broadband for its cellular network, Sierra Wireless has announced USB adapters that take advantage of both the new EVDO connection speeds as well as its HSDPA counterpart on GSM networks. The AirCard 595U is built for both the original EVDO and its latest update; in turn, the AirCard 875U can transmit data from HSDPA networks as well as EDGE and GPRS. Both new cards have GPS support for location-based functions and include internal batteries to maintain connections at the very limits of wireless signals. A cradle (pictured) is included with either card to simplify swapping a single card between desktops and portables. AirCard 595U models ship in the last quarter of 2006 to coincide with the Sprint network launch, while 875U cards are not expected until the first quarter of 2007. All cards are compatible with either MacOS X or Windows.
