Helio today launched the Hybrid, an EV-DO PC card based on the Sierra AirCard 580. Although the card itself only has a EV-DO, Hybrid includes software that will allow a Windows laptop to seamlessly switch between the card and the laptop's built in Wi-Fi. The monthly data subscription includes both EV-DO data as well as access to any hotspot on the Boingo network. The software will ask to join any Boingo or free, open hotspot when in range if that can provide a better connection. Helio is offering the card for free with a 2 year membership to the Hybrid plan, which costs $85 per month. It will be available in Fry's as well as online.
