Sprint's hot spots go tri-band LTE

Sprint announced at CTIA a new trio of 4G LTE-capable tri-band hot-spot devices.


Netgear Zing

This one, the Netgear Zing, has the distinction of working its magic through a touch-screen LCD display, which makes information about your power, connections, and signal strength clear and accessible.

The Zing can take you overseas

The real news with the Zing is that it can surf GSM overseas. If you plan to travel, an international plan will get you started. The Zing also has storage space, so it can carry photos and presentations.

Novatel Wireless MiFi 500 LTE

Not quite pocket-friendly

The MiFi 500 LTE is fairly thick, but also very light, so it won't weigh you down.

Plug it in

The outlets are sparse on this hot spot, but you will, of course, be able to charge it using a Micro-USB cable.

Netgear 341U USB Modem

Like all other USB modems, this little guy plugs directly into your computer's USB port. Modems are perfect for people who want an easy, lightweight option that doesn't involve setting passwords or worrying if the device is charged.

Back of the device

The tiny USB modem is compact enough to slip into most pockets. Sprint didn't share prices or release dates, except to say that all three devices will arrive this summer.
