Verizon today announced it has started to sell the Sierra Aircard 595 online. The 595 is an EV-DO Revision A PC Card, which is also sold by Sprint. Like Sprint before them, Verizon is launching the card in anticipation of their Revision A network coming online. The card is compatible with current EV-DO Release 0 and 1xRTT networks in the meantime. Verizon recently stated it has been building out Rev. A and will make the service available once enough cities have been upgraded. The Aircard 595 is available online for $100 with a two year contract and a $50 rebate. It will be available in stores in mid-January.

Firmware Upgrades?

So my question of course is whether or not Rev 0 cards are upgradeable to Rev A. I've currently got a Dell laptop with the Verizon mini-PCI card built in (it was fun to install) and wondering if they'll release a firmware grade or not.

Thoughts?

Why so much?

Why is this aircard costing so much? If its the same one offered by Sprint, shouldn't it be $50 after MIR instead of $100?
different companies are able to obtain different deals for thier devices.
simply speculating, it would be that VZW ordered less cards than Sprint, because Sprint is planing on having more Rev A capable towers than VZW in a shorter time. this in turn ...

Proud of verizon

verizon is finally taking the step toward greatness... indeed sprint did do it first but that is not what i am here to point out... verizons voice service is averagely priced (still way to high) but their data plans are rediculous.. verizon charges way to much for their data plans for phones... and im betting that when verizon does release rev a phones the data packages for devices will increase... verizon is a decent company im not trying to bash them.. but the pricing on their data packages is outrageous and the limits they put on their broadband cards are proposterous...
