Late last week a rumor surfaced that Verizon would start selling Rev-A hardware on Friday, December 15th. That rumor proved to be accurate, and just as soon as the Rev-A Sierra AirCard 595 from Verizon was available for sale, speculation began on the subject of where Verizon might already have Rev-A turned on. An interview with Verizon implied that all recent Verizon PR about new EVDO markets were Rev-A activations, but they stopped short of actually saying that, officially.
We just got our hands on the new card and are testing it on a train ride from our offices in Cary, IL into downtown Chicago and back. We are excited to report that Rev-A is definitely live in Chicago!

We will maintain a list of all the cities where Rev-A has been spotted, over on EVDO FORUMS
