Sprint USB modem doesn't need software installs

Sprint has just introduced a 4G-capable USB modem, the 3G/4G Plug-in-Connect USB. It can simply be plugged into a Windows, Mac, or Linux computer and provide mobile data access on Sprint's 4G network or 3G in areas not yet covered by the faster network. There is no need to install drivers, just as with the recently introduced Clearwire Stick Atlas modem.

The lack of required software makes the device ideal for sharing with friends or colleagues. The stick also offers turn-by-turn GPS navigation using the Sprint Navigation software. The modem ships with a bundled six-inch USB extension cable.

The Sprint modem is free on a two-year data plan, though a $50 mail-in rebate is required.
