Sprint and Novatel Wireless have announced that they will offer the Merlin EX720 by late February, Sprint's first Rev. A-capable ExpressCard. According to Sprint, it will be available via sales channels and retail stores and will cost $179.99 with two-year subscription. Along with the product announcement, Sprint is also adding several more markets to its Rev. A deployment (Southern Florida, Portland, Ore., and Puerto Rico) and raising its advertised EV-DO network speeds. Rev. A markets are seeing average upload speeds of 350-500 Kbps and download speeds of 600 Kbps - 1.4 Mbps, compared to previously advertised upload speeds of 50-70 Kbps and download speeds of 400-700 Kbps. No word on whether or not these are real-world speeds. Lastly, Sprint has also announced that the EX720, as well as the Novotel U720 and S720, will be able to take advantage of location-based services (LBS) through an upgraded version of the Sprint Connection Manager software.
