With the iPad
launch getting closer and closer, Sprint
wants to remind you
that its Overdrive 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot will be the perfect accessory for
Apple's latest device. According to the wireless carrier, the Overdrive 3G/4G
Mobile Hotspot will give you speeds that are up to 10 times faster than 3G. In addition,
the Overdrive can connect up to five Wi-Fi
enabled devices, so you
won't be limited to access on just the iPad.
Currently, Sprint and Clearwire offer 4G service in 28 major
markets. The companies plan to add additional markets throughout the year and
expect to cover up to 120 million people by year end.
Sprint Overdrive 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot Empowers
Wi-Fi-Enabled Devices to Access 4G Speeds Today
OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Apr 01, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) --Isn't it
nice to have the freedom to choose what wireless service powers your favorite
Wi-Fi enabled device, such as the Zune HD, iPod Touch or soon-to-launch iPad?
With Sprint, the only national U.S. wireless carrier bringing 4G speeds to any
Wi-Fi enabled device, you can enjoy super fast downloads, streaming video and
Web browsing at turbo-speed on your device - the type of use your Zune, iPod or
iPad was intended for.
With the Sprint Overdrive 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot, you can surf
the web on your new iPad up to 10 times faster than 3G; download your favorite
tunes on your Zune HD in seconds; or turn your iPod Touch with Skype into a
voice phone and make a call.
Not only does the Overdrive enhance everything your favorite
device was built for, it also connects up to five Wi-Fi enabled devices such as
your computer, game console or camera.
"When coupled with Sprint's 4G technology, any
Wi-Fi-enabled device will be faster than 3G," said Matt Carter, president
of Sprint 4G. "It will be six months to a year or longer before any other
national wireless carrier can connect a Wi-Fi-enabled tablet like the iPad with
up to four more wireless devices simultaneously at 4G speeds like the Overdrive
can do today."
Currently, Sprint 4G covers 28 major markets such as
Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Las Vegas, Philadelphia,
Portland, Ore., San Antonio and Seattle. In 2010, Sprint will launch many more
markets, and is expected to cover up to 120 million people with Sprint 4G
service. Cities expected to see 4G include Boston, Cincinnati, Cleveland,
Denver, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, Pittsburgh,
Salt Lake City, San Francisco and St. Louis. View 4G coverage information for
