Posted by at 12:32 pm on September 9, 2011

Sprint has quietly introduced a global hotspot, officially called the Sprint International Mobile Hotspot by ZTE. It allows users to connect up to five Wi-Fi devices at the same time to share its EVDO data link when local and HSPA when abroad, though in the latter case only with one device at a time. The compact router doesn’t require software installation or a connector.

Users can change security and other settings using a browser-based user interface and can monitor data transfer status and battery condition thanks to an external display. The Wi-Fi range is said to be as much as 131 feet, while battery life is rated at four hours of active use.

The 802.11g-capable device is compatible with Windows 7, Vista, and XP, as well as Mac OS X​ and Linux. An unlocked SIM card with both WCDMA and GSM support comes with the device. Power outlet adapters for use in multiple countries are included with the hotspot.

Ship dates and pricing for the hotspot haven’t been disclosed.
