<h2>A Really Hot Hotspot</h2><br><br>Sprint's [[xref:http://www.pcworld.com/businesscenter/article/186168/sprint_shows_off_overdrive_wireless_router.html|Overdrive 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot|Overdrive 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot]] by Sierra Wireless is the first dual-mode mobile hotspot. This elegant little device connects to either Sprint's 3G network or Clearwire's 4G WiMAX network (now in 27 cities; 80 by 2011), and then connects up to five other devices via Wi-Fi. These devices can include an iPod Touch running Skype for voice, or a laptop streaming video wirelessly from sites like Hulu. The Overdrive isn't the first mobile hotspot on the market (see the MiFi 2200 from Novatel), but it is the first one to connect to major 3G and 4G networks. The device is available January 10 for US$100. --<i>Mark Sullivan</i>
