AT&T today announced that its first batch of Long Term Evolution-compatible devices will become available on Sunday, August 21. The devices, both made by Sierra Wireless, are the USBConnect Momentum 4G (dongle) and the Elevate 4G (hotspot). The Momentum 4G costs $49.99 and the Elevate 4G costs $69.99, both requiring a new two-year contract. Both devices will include a slot for microSD cards, support for GPS, and support for Apple computers at launch. The Elevate 4G has a 1.77-inch LCD display for access to device information and supports up to five connected devices for up to five hours. Both devices can also fall back to Category 14 HSPA+ (max of 21Mbps downloads under optimal conditions) when LTE isn't available. They will be in AT&T stores starting August 21. AT&T's LTE network will launch at some point soon after the devices become available, but AT&T has still not locked down a definitive date. AT&T also announced that the USBConnect Adrenaline will also be able to be updated to LTE beginning Aug. 26. LTE data plans for mobile broadband devices will cost $50 per month for 5GB. Overage charges will come in at $10 per GB over the 5GB limit. AT&T's first five LTE markets will be Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. AT&T plans to have 15 markets and 70 million people covered with LTE by the end of the year.
