It wasn’t so long ago that a wireless broadband modem was a large and clunky device that often needed two of your available USB ports to operate. The things drew lots of power and were just plain big. Modems today have shrunk in size and need less power from your notebook. Verizon has announced a new and small wireless broadband modem that will be available soon.
The modem is called the USB760 Micro Modem and it offers a microSD card slot that supports up to 8GB of storage. The software needed to use the modem on Windows and Mac systems is installed on the modem so no disc is needed. The modem is sized more like a USB drive that the typical broadband modem.
