CLEAR Announces 4G and 3G/4G Hotspot Devices

In addition to the new 3G/4G USB modem that CLEAR debuted last week - the Series S 4G+ modem, which is only available in three markets right now - CLEAR has announced two more very cool devices that are bound to make 4G fans very happy. Beginning in July, CLEAR will offer two 4G-capable wireless hotspots. Like the Series S 4G+ modem announced earlier this month, both of the upcoming hotspots are Mac compatible - this is great news for Mac users, as CLEAR's early devices were not Mac friendly. Read on for more info about the upcoming hotspots:

clear spot 4g

1) The "Clear Spot 4G Infomark Biscuit" (above) is a 4G-only portable hotspot that operates similar to the 3G MiFi available from Sprint and Verizon. It features a built-in rechargeable battery that runs for 4-5 hours on a single charge and provides wireless connectivity for up 8 WiFi devices. It uses a standard wireless "G" radio for broadcasting WiFi, so the wireless range is likely 80-150' (depending on walls, interference, etc). The Clear Spot 4G will be available next month for $99.99 or $4.99/month if you choose a 2-year contract.

clear spot 4G+

2) The "Clear Spot 4G+ Sierra Eagle" (above) is CLEAR's version of the Sierra Overdrive, which has been available from Sprint for several months now. Unlike the Clear Spot 4G, the Clear Spot 4G+ can connect to both the 4G WiMAX network and Sprint's nationwide 3G network, making it a great choice for folks who need coverage outside of 4G-covered areas. It features a built-in rechargeable battery that runs for around 3 hours on a single charge and provides wireless connectivity for up 5 WiFi devices. It uses a standard wireless "G" radio for broadcasting WiFi, so the wireless range is approximately 80-150' (depending on walls, interference, etc). The Clear Spot 4G+ will be available next month for $249.99 or $5.99/month if you choose a 2-year contract.
