4G network operator Clearwire has just unveiled CLEAR iSpot. Its a personal hotspot with dedicated support for Apple mobile devices, including the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Clearwire says the new hotspot brings the speed and mobility of true mobile broadband to users ready for 4G.
The iSpot is CLEARs first 4G personal mobile hotspot made exclusively for Apple mobile products. iSpot users can share 4G speed with up to eight Wi-Fi-enabled Apple mobile devices at once. And if you like all of your gadgets to work together aesthetically, youre in luck. Clearwire says the iSpots ergonomic design and white casing are aimed to complement the iconic image of Apple products.
With the iSpot, Apple customers dont have to sort through confusing service plans with overage fees, nor do they have to worry about how much data theyre using,” said Thomas Enraght-Moony, senior vice president of marketing at Clearwire. Instead, with CLEAR, customers can run all of their Apple mobile devices at true broadband speeds for a single, simple monthly fee.”
Average download speeds are 3-6mbps, with burst over 10mbps. For example, using the CLEAR iSpot, an iPad user can stream unlimited movies or TV shows via the Netflix app from home, work or on the go, while an iPod user can stream Pandora music or live sports play-by-play on the commute home.
The iSpot adds to CLEARs line of personal mobile hotspots, which includes the CLEAR Spot 4G and CLEAR Spot 4G+.
