Sprint Offers New Sierra Wireless 598U USB Broadband Card

Sprint & Sierra Wireless throws us another broadband card to play with. Here’s the essential info:

EVDO Rev. A (Up to 3.1 Mbps)
USB format with an interesting clip for keeping it out of harm’s way (looks a bit cumbersome though)
Smallest broadband card available today
microSD card (up to 32 GB expansion)
Built-in GPS
Supports laptops going into sleep and hibernation (i.e. it’ll connect after being woken up)

Unless you’ve already had a broadband card, the last feature may not matter that much. When your only way of getting online is a broadband card like myself, that becomes really important. It’s a nice feature that I hope to see become standard.
