Sprint’s Overdrive (manufacturered by Sierra Wireless) was the first 3G/4G to WiFi mobile hotspot product. It uses Clear’s WiMAX network to provide 4G access. Sprint announced the follow-up to the Overdrive will be available on March 20 (this coming Sunday).
The Overdrive Pro has a large display than the original Overdrive. It can provide access to Sprint’s 3G and 4G networks to up to 8 WiFi devices. The previous model could support up to 5 connected WiFi devices. The Overdrive Pro starts and shuts down faster than the Overdrive. The Overdrive Pro will cost $49.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and agreeing to a two-year contract.
