The Tiny New Novatel USB727 EV-DO Interface

novatel_u727.jpg

This new EV-DO interfaces from Novatel—this is the Sprint model, but Verizon got one, too—replace the bulbous lumps precipitously dangling from a laptop’s USB port with slim little things no bigger than the average flash drive. And then to make it better, they add a microSD slot for an optional 4GB of memory, just for kicks. I think EV-DO and its other high-speed wireless counterparts to be one of the wonders of the modern computing age, but this is the first USB solution that I would consider using instead of a PCMCIA or ExpressCard version.

The U727 will be available for $280, or less with a new subscription.

To see several videos of the card go here: http://moremobileinternet.com/video-reviews/#usb727 There are also videos of this card with some mobile routers so you can share the connection with multiple computers at the same time!
