Sprint today announced the the PCD U1901 WiMax USB modem. The U1901 connects laptops or netbooks to Sprint's WiMax network for wireless broadband. It is compatible with Windows Vista, XP, and Windows 7, and Mac OS 10.5 and 10.6. It solely uses WiMax, and does not fall back on Sprint's CDMA 3G network when WiMax is not available. Pricing and exact availability weren't made clear.

no fall back

well that is kinda of crappy if you travel
But plenty of people don't, or can use wifi. Hopefully this will have a plan less than the traditional and typical $59.99...
lol. i thought the same thing. i was like, where's the fall-back bands?

This product would definitely spark alot of questioning, being a previous sprint customer there were alot of additional service charges that i was unaware of. Wifi is not hard to gain access to and the main question is will the rates be affordable/reasonable for the customers????!!!

Would there be a package deal for all 2-3 services provided?

Does this mean, when I'm not in Hooterville or one of the other few backwoods place that has WiMAX won't be able to do mobile broadband?
