New firmware just released allows the Kyocera KR1 EVDO Mobile Router to work with some of the latest EVDO Rev A Cards.
Firmware RK1010 adds support for Sprint Ovation U720, Sprint PX-500, Verizon USB720, Verizon PC5750 and the Kyocera KPC680 (Rev A ExpressCard with adapter - not yet shipping).
We believe that fully supporting the EVDO USB modems from Verizon & Sprint offers a "killer combo". Not only do you get instant portable hotspot, BUT when you are not needing the router, just unplug the USB720/U720 and use in any desktop, laptop, mac or Windows. That gives a lot of flexibility.
The Kyocera KR1 has been Available since February 2006. It has been a workhorse for 1000s of customers. With the support of the latest Rev A devices - it will become a workhorse for even more :)
Currently the RK1010 firmware is available for 3Gstore customers only, we expect Kyocera to post it to their web site, sometime next week.
