AT&T has announced a new LaptopConnect Lightning modem from Sierra Wireless that is set to hit on November 22nd. The modem offers access to HSPA data speeds of up to 7.2Mbps download. That is a considerably faster download speed than is currently available in most areas and is meant to hold us over until LTE debuts in 2010/2011.
The modem is a USB device designed for laptop use and has a swiveling USB connector that allows it to be used in portrait or landscape modes. The device is pre-loaded with AT&T Communications Manager 7.0 software to manage connections.
The software will automatically connect users to AT&T hotspots in range at no cost. The modem will be free after a $100 mail-in rebate with a data plan of at least $35 monthly. The $35 monthly plan gets 200MB of data and a 5GB data plan costs $60 monthly.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
