AirCard 875U at ATT

AT&T this morning added a new universal adapter for its fledgling 3G wireless network. The Sierra Wireless AirCard 875U adds HSDPA to any notebook with a USB port, allowing MacBooks and other portables without card slots to connect at up to 3.6Mbps on the cell carrier's fastest network. The stick-shaped modem is also ready for roaming European networks with UMTS and has legacy support for EDGE as well as GPRS on the fringes of world networks.

Support is provided for any Mac OS X system, Sierra Wireless says, as well as Windows 2000 up to and including Vista. The 875U will be ready for AT&T subscribers as of May 7th, when it should sell for $50 with a two-year data plan and for an as-yet unlisted price as a stand-alone purchase.
