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.
