Read more to see the first live shots of Sprint’s tiny LTE portable hotspot.
Keeping true to Sprint’s promise, the LTE hotspot will be a tri-mode device with CDMA, LTE and WiMax. As such, it will be immediately useful in all WiMAX markets as Sprint rolls out Network Vision.
Sprint has contacted us and corrected the specifications for the hotspot and it will feature LTE, WiMax and EVDO Rev. A, but it will be the only tri-mode device released on the carrier, with future smartphones staying dual-mode and focused on LTE.
Similar to other LTE portable hotspots, the device will come with a desktop cradle that provides for improved reception. The desktop charging cradle will provide >5dbm reception improvement, crucial for using the device as a home Internet connection backup or replacement. The 1.7 inch LCD display will provide for persistent status, similar to Sierra’s other hotspots.
