Sprint will begin selling the Sierra Wireless Aircard 580 EV-DO data card today through business sales channels, however the carrier has not yet launched EV-DO any markets. Sprint said it will announce EV-DO pricing in the near future, and still plans on launching the high-speed data service in select major markets by mid-year, expanding to most major markets by year's end. Subscribers who buy the card will be logging on via Sprint's existing 1xRTT network in the meantime.
