Novatel shows smallest dual carrier HSPA+ modem

Novatel Wireless on Tuesday announced it will soon bring out the smallest dual carrier HSPA+ USB modem. It will initially be available at Spain's Telefonica Moviles network before arriving at other carriers around the world. The Ovation MC545 was demonstrated to provide a maximum download speed of 40.5Mbps when running on Ericsson's DC-HSPA+ network.

DC-HSPA+ networks support maximum theoretical speeds of up 42Mbps when downloading and 5.7Mbps when uploading. The Ovation modem currently uses the 900MHz, 1,900MHz and 2,100MHz 3G bands and won't likely reach the US in its current form, however. The modem has a built-in microSDHC memory card slot for storing as much as 32GB.

Pricing or release dates haven't been released for the Ovation MC545 in markets other than Spain.
