Sprint Announces the Overdrive
Today Sprint announced a new mobile hotspot device called the Overdrive. The Overdrive uses Sprint's WiMax network to connect to the internet, and then, similar to Novatel's MiFi, shares Wi-Fi with other devices. Sprint believes that 4G will be the backbone for mobile internet connections, but realizes that most connected devices will continue to use Wi-Fi. The Overdrive also connects to Sprint's 3G CDMA network. Sprint says that the Overdrive will allow people to stream HDTV wireless around a home, surf the Web, stream Pandora and support VoIP calling all at the same time. The device is being made by Sierra Wireless. The Overdrive will be sold at Best Buy stores across 10 markets in the U.S. on January 10. It will cost $100 after a $50 mail-in rebate. It requires a Sprint 4G/3G data plan.

Wow awesome announcement...
My contract is up in April, and with NOTHING exciting coming to Sprint and possibly keeping me with them, looks like I will have to leave their dependable network and good coverage because they don't have the devices to run on said network!
Sprint you really disappoint me!
