Fresh off its chat about its 4G LTE plans, Sprint has released a Sierra Wireless Tri-Fi hotspot that can handle CDMA 3G, WiMax 4G and 4G LTE. It looks like it’s a triple threat.
Sprint said it will be able to intelligently shift between the three technologies for a seamless customer experience and other than the novelty of having WiMax and LTE, it’s like your average hotspot. It can create a personal Internet cloud for up to 8 WiFi devices, has a screen for battery life and signal strength, supports microSD cards and it even has a GPS chip inside.
At 3.84 inches x 2.25 x 0.95 inches, it’s not the smallest hotspot we’ve ever seen but that footprint doesn’t seem to bad. The Tri-Fi will set you back about $100 after rebates and signing a two-year contract and it will be available May 18. Any of you going to bite on this?
