Pantech EVDO Sprint Card

Sprint says it is now carrying one of the least expensive mobile broadband cards available. Shipping today, the Pantech PX-500 is a PC Card adapter that supports both the original EVDO as well as its new Revision A which is expected to serve as much as 800Kbps downstream and 400Kbps upstream in real-world conditions. A dual-band antenna is built-in to maintain the signal at the fringes of coverage areas. Power is also carefully managed by the card to prevent laptop batteries from draining prematurely. Crucially, Sprint says, the new card is available for free through its website after a discount and mail-in rebate, leaving subscribers to pay only the cost of the data plan itself.
