Sierra Wireless announced today a new USB Modem called the 597 USB EVDO Rev A Modem. This modem will not be shipping until the April/May timeframe. It is unclear if it will be available on Verizon or Sprint first.
We hope to get a test unit direct from Sierra for some early testing and benchmarking and then we will know how it compares to other EVDO USB modem and other answers such as:
- Does it work natively with Mac
- Does it "fit" in the MacBook Air
- How much power does it need
- How does it compare in size to the CDU680, U727, UM150, etc.
