Orlando -- Sierra Wireless today announced an agreement to supply the new Sierra Wireless AirCard 595U USB modem for access to the Sprint Mobile Broadband EV-DO Rev A Network. The Sprint Mobile Broadband USB Modem (AirCard 595U) will be available next month in Sprint sales channels, including retail stores and at www.sprint.com, and can be purchased for as low as $49.99 with a two-year subscriber agreement and $50 mail in rebate. Sprint and Sierra Wireless are also demonstrating the modem at CTIA Wireless 2007.
"We are pleased to collaborate with Sprint in the launch of our newest product, the AirCard 595U USB modem," said Dan Schieler, senior vice president, Worldwide Sales for Sierra Wireless. "With value-added features like the included desktop docking cradle, access to Sprint Location Services with the latest version of Sprint Connection Manager, and battery boosted power for better performance in a variety of coverage areas, the AirCard 595U delivers a best-in-class solution for data customers looking for the flexibility that a USB interface provides."
The stylish and compact AirCard 595U USB modem can be plugged directly into the USB ports of notebook or desktop computers, or can be connected through an included docking cradle. This offers an alternative for customers without PCMCIA card slots and allows them to move a single wireless data service between multiple computers. The AirCard 595U includes an internal battery to ensure optimal performance, and offers GPS capability to enable "locate and search" functionality. The AirCard 595U supports both Windows and Macintosh operating systems.
