Samsung teases mystery device called “The Overachiever”

Samsung has quietly launched a teaser page for a mysterious device that it's calling "The Overachiever." Not too many clues have been provided, but the device appears to be a wireless USB modem, possibly for 4G HSPA+ or LTE connectivity while on the road. The page simply reads "Meet The Overachiever" and provides a registration button with the message, "Take the first step on the road to greatness." Very cryptic indeed.

Clicking on the button takes you to a sign-up page where you are encouraged to register to get the latest information on The Overachiever. The device doesn't appear to be attached to any specific carrier, as the the sign-up form asks you to pick your carrier preference. AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile are all listed in the drop-down menu along with Cellular South, Metro PCS, and US Cellular.

Considering the shape and design of the device, a USB modem would make the most sense. And at this point in the game, it should definitely support 4G LTE and HSPA+ network connectivity. However, AT&T and Verizon already have LTE-capable modems and hotspots while T-Mobile has its HSPA+ modems that includes one for its 42Mbps service.
