Verizon Ships First EVDO Rev A Card - AC595

Verizon Ships First EVDO Rev A Card - Sierra AirCard 595 PCMCIA

Verizon joins the EVDO Rev A race with their first EVDO Rev A card. This is a PCMCIA card, so it will only work in laptops that have a PCMCIA slot (not the newer ExpressCard slot). The AirCard 595 has a proprierty antenna connector and isn't compatible with many popular routers. However, IT IS REV A.

We have heard that carriers have only been able to get EVDO Rev A base stations for the last few months and that all the sites that have gone live have actually been EVDO Rev A. We will know after this card starts appearing in market.
