    Sprint and the iPad 4G


    Holding off for the for the iPad 3G? Want the fastest possible data speeds over cellular network? Then purchasing the Sierra Wireless Overdrive 3G/4G WiFi Hotspot from Sprint might be the way to go. Sprint's latest commercial shows the iPhone running over Sprint's 4G hotspot and takes aim at both AT&T and Verizon. I'd have to bet an iPad commercial is in the works. Check out the video below!

    I've never used sprint but it can't be worse than the abysmal service and customer care you get from ATT.

    Unlimited "4G" (if you can get it in your area) and 5gb of 3G for the low-low price of $59.99 a month. Still a little rich for my blood. I'll stick to tethering with the iPhone for now.

    It would work for just about any device with wifi since it take their 4G network and turns it into a wifi hotspot. Pretty cool idea. Hopefully other providers will follow suit with their own 3g or 4g to wifi and make the price more competitive.

    I'm pretty sure sprint is the last company to get this, they're just the only one throwing ad dollars at it...

    Exclamation Sprint just changed the game !!!!! - New 4G phone !!!

    The nation's first 4G phone HTC EVO 4 (out this summer on Sprint) will be able to instantly become a mobile wifi hotspot (at 4G speeds) for upto (8) devices with the push of a button.

    This done without buying an additional "mi-fi" device to elevate the speeds of your Wi-Fi only iPad.

    Now...my 32GB wi-fi iPad will be become a 4G speed weapon at anytime, w/o depending on the At&T only network, originally planned by Apple.


    Sprint - HTC EVO? 4G

    I'm in.

    It could be, I think it's going to depend on price and if 4G is available in your area.

    I can honestly say, I don't know anyone that uses Spring. Do any of you use Sprint? Are you happy with your service?
