Sprint 4G Desktop Modem CPEi25150 by Motorola goes on sale

Sprint 4G Desktop Modem CPEi25150 by Motorola goes on sale

Sprint's latest Motorola WiMAX 4G modem quietly went on sale over the weekend, and while it's not exactly mobile-warrior friendly in size, it does offer a whole lot more than your regular USB dongle.  The Sprint 4G Desktop Modem CPEi25150 by Motorola squeezes in high gain dual-antennas as well as an ethernet port rather than a USB port, which means it's straightforward to hook it up to your existing WiFi router.

That of course means there's no onboard WiFi, which seems a little short-sighted as Sprint are pushing the CPEi25150 as mobile solution.  If you're in one of the 27 areas where the carrier currently has a 4G WiMAX network in operation, you could be getting 10x the speed of a regular 3G connection.

The Sprint 4G Desktop Modem CPEi25150 by Motorola is available to order now for both home and business users, priced at $99.99 after a $150 mail-in rebate.  That's presuming you take out a new two-year Sprint 4G agreement, which will cost you $49.99 per month.

AT&T iPhone tethering at end of July for $55?

The AT&T tethering debacle continues, and after yesterday's super-simple unofficial hack, now comes the first leak regarding possible pricing for the carrier's official package.  According to an internal AT&T source, tethering for the iPhone 3G and 3G S will be offered at the end of July, priced at a whopping $55 per month.

The source also went on to say that MMS support on AT&T is expected in mid-July, earlier perhaps than the carrier led us to believe with their "end of the summer" promises.  AT&T have already confirmed that MMS messages will be charged the same as SMS messages.
