SierraWireless AC595U Rev-A USB to launch on Sprint

At CTIA 2007 this morning, Sierra Wireless announced that their new AirCard 595U Rev-A USB Modem will debut on Sprint's Mobile BroadBand Network sometime in April, 2007.

The device is said to be priced similar to the Novatel U720 that Sprint already offers: $49.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate.

The AirCard 595U can be plugged directly into the USB ports of notebook or desktop computers, or can be connected through an included docking cradle.

The AirCard 595U includes an internal battery to ensure optimal performance, offers GPS capability to enable "locate and search" functionality, and is said to support both Windows and Macintosh operating systems.
