Sierra Wireless Tri-Network Hotspot Set to Launch on May 18th
Earlier in the year at CES Sprint made its first three LTE devices official. Overlooked by the Galaxy Nexus and LG Viper, the Sierra Wireless Tri-Network Hotspot was the red haired stepchild of the trio. Wondering what the future held for the device that plays nice with 3G, WiMAX and LTE, our sources threw us a bone and advised that Sprint intends to release their first LTE hotspot on May 18th.
As a refresher, the Tri-Network Hotspot will support up to 8 simultaneous data connections, with an indoor/outdoor range of 115/150 feet and 32GB of shared storage. But its biggest selling point will be its ability to climb Sprint’s network ladder, supporting the highest mobile broadband speeds Sprint has to offer, no matter where you happen to find yourself located. Our source was unable to confirm price or data plan details at this time, but we’ll continue to play things close to the vest and see what we can dig up.
