Sprint broadband USB modem
To support the spread of its EVDO Revision A service across the United States, Sprint will introduce its first mobile USB broadband modem in November, says Slashphone. The Novatel Ovation U720 will plug into any laptop's USB port, allowing wireless access to the Sprint Power Vision Network. Sprint is already selling PC Card modems under different pricing plans, with some being free or reduced in price if the user signs a Power Vision contract. The U720 is essentially a USB incarnation of the Merlin S720.
