Sprint today started selling the country's first EVDO Revision A-capable device, the Novatel S720 Mobile Broadband Card. The Type II PC card works on Sprint's current EVDO Release 0 network - currently covering over 153 million people - and will also take advantage of EVDO Rev. A as Sprint starts upgrading its network in coming months. By the end of this year, Sprint plans to cover 40 million people with EVDO Rev. A, and 200 million people with EVDO Rel. 0. The new Rev A. technology offers faster download speeds, much faster upload speeds, and less overall latency (delay). In a separate announcement, Sierra Wireless yesterday announced the first EVDO Rev. A card for laptops in the new ExpressCard form factor. It is expected to launch in Q1 2007.
