Clearwire/Sprint Followup

Clearwire Sprint 3G 4G ArticleI came across an article today about Sprint offering a 3G/4G USB Modem for $149 with a $79.99 per month contract. This USB modem will automatically switch between Sprint’s 3G network and Clearwire’s 4G WiMax network when it is available (which is currently only in parts of Baltimore).

It is a great step forward for Sprint/Clearwire that will make the service more attractive, but will people really pay an extra $20 a month for such a big external device?

If they really want Clearwire to be a runaway success, they need to find a way to embed this kind of technology into the phone and allow tethering of the phone to any computer (especially laptops). If they did that and threw in 1000 minutes and unlimited texts and unlimited data for $60 per month. I’m in.

What do you think?
