Just ask anyone who knows me; I can hardly stand to be without Internet access. If my connection goes down I begin to get cold chills at the thought of missing an email within five minutes. To stave off an Internet restricted diet in case of emergency I have my iPhone and laptop complete with EVDO modem to keep me from being offline.
I have often considered getting a USB EVDO modem for use with my desktop computer, but haven’t bitten the bullet and done that yet. Novatel Wireless introduced a couple new USB modems today that look very tempting. The MC992D and MC990D are both wireless broadband modems that can operate on multiple frequencies including HSPA, WCDMA, EDGE and GPRS networks.
