Verizon ships Samsung 4G hotspot and Novatel modem

Verizon today began shipping some of the 4G data-only devices it showed at CES. The Samsung 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot is its first shipping LTE router and shares its speeds over an 802.11n Wi-Fi connection with as many as five devices, reverting to EVDO 3G if not in one of Verizon's faster areas. It ships on March 31 and will cost $100 with a two-year data contract starting at $50 per month for 5GB, albeit only after a $50 mail-in rebate.

Accompanying the router is Novatel's promised USB551L 4G modem. The stick can also fall back to 3G and has both Mac and Windows support from the start. It too costs $100 on contract and after a similar $50 rebate.

    Only True 4G in the US

    If you haven't tried Verizon's LTE, you have No idea how damn fast it is. 20Mbit is unreal on a mobile device. The Thunderbold routinely gets over 20 down and 14Mbit up. Real speeds... no vaporware.

    This hotspot will rock. Challenge is the 5Gig limit can be reached in a few short sessions.
