Sierra Wireless Offers AirCard USB

By Glenn Fleishman

Sierra Wireless Usb Modem Cradle MThe company will ship the 595U for EVDO Rev. A networks by the end of 2006; HSDPA networks via the 875U in first quarter 2007: With a growing number of computers sporting ExpressCard slots or no card slots, and the growing interest in using cellular data on more exotic devices without slots and desktop computers, a USB adapter is a natural evolution of the form factor. It’s only surprising that it took this long. A USB cell modem also makes it easier to walk your service around among many devices you own or share them for a business.

They’ll offer a docking cradle, which will make the device easier to use on desktop computers in which removing the USB dongle would require crawling behind the computer. The cradle allows better placement of the modem for signal reception, too.

Mac users will be happy to note that both upcoming cards will feature support for Apple’s operating system.
