Mac compatible Sprint EVDO card

updated 11:50 am EDT, Thu August 31, 2006

Seirra wireless EVDO Mac

Sierra Wireless recently announced two new USB adapters to take advantage of newly upgraded mobile broadband connections offered by Sprint and other providers. Electronista reports that Sprint recently announced plans to upgrade its cellular network to support EVDO Rev A. broadband and that one of the new cards, dubbed AirCard 595U, is compatible with both the original EVDO standard and its more recent upgrade. The new AirCard ships with a cradle to make swapping a single card between desktops and portables easier. Both it and the almost identical, HSDPA-oriented AirCard 875U are Mac OS X (and Windows) compatible. The 595U will ship in the fourth quarter of this year to coincide with Sprint's upgraded service. Pricing and system requirements are not currently available for either model. [images included]

    can I make phone calls?

    If I could make phone calls on this puppy, I'd get one. It looks so smooth and sleek -- just like a cellphone!
