Sprint Releases EVDO Rev A Firmware

If you have one of the new Sprint EVDO Rev A PCMCIA cards from Sprint (Merlin S720, Pantech PX-500, Aircard 595), we have good news for you. Tonight, Sprint released updated Connection Managers that update the firmware of these EVDO Rev A cards to actually go faster when in an EVDO Rev A area. Sprint started shipping the EVDO Rev A cards with EVDO Rev 0 software, but now with the latest firmware updates released, your Sprint cards can go at the faster EVDO speeds (only when in a newer EVDO Rev A City).
