August 12, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Sprint has announced its new U1901 4G USB WiMax modem, which can be used to connect laptops and netbooks at an enviable 4G speed. The device, compatible with both Windows PC and Mac computers, will provide speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G. The U1901 is compatible with Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 7, Mac Operating System 10.5 and 10.6.

The modem which weighs just 0.9 ounces has been incorporated with a Beceem BCSM250 chipset. A very small gadget with a length of just 3.15 inches, the Sprint U1901 also comes with two external antenna ports for a docking cradle. These are sold separately, we hear.

If you are looking at buying the U1901, let us tell you, the device would be ideal for highly-mobile Internet users, such as high school and college students who want to browse the Internet, send and receive e-mails, explore social networking and multimedia entertainment and download content on the go. It is also suited for companies who want to send data to traveling workers, quickly and efficiently. The device is built to work specifically with the Sprint 4G Network. It is not compatible with 3G, so you might want to upgrade to 4G if you are planning to use this device. The device which is expected to be available soon has not yet been priced, although it has been billed “affordable” by the company.
