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.

Why so much?
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 ...
