Verizon ships EVDO/HSPA world 3G stick

updated 03:10 pm EDT, Tue September 1, 2009

Verizon UMW190 Modem

Verizon today added a new USB-based 3G modem intended for world travelers. The PCD-made UWM190 supports EVDO Revision A for its data in most of North America but also has tri-band HSPA for 3G in the Americas, Europe and much of Asia. Its unique trick is a sliding cover that protects the swiveling USB connector when it's not in use.

For now, the modem only officially supports PCs running Windows 2000, XP or Vista but does bring support for SMS messaging over the cellular network. Price is key as PCD's adapter is selling today for $50 when paired with a two-year data plan and a $50 rebate.
