Sprint to offer 3G/4G Mobile Hot Spot from Sierra Wireless?
If you are lonely and have no one to pal around with, here is a way to get 4 people to quickly come sidling up to you. Expected to be launched in February, the Sierra Wireless built 3G/4G mobile hot spot for Sprint  will allow 5 users to get a Wi-Fi connection at the same time and will even share the contents of a microSD card to those connected to the data card. Users have to be within 100 feet of the device to grab the connection. No pricing info has been released, nor is there a precise launch date although BGR-able to obtain a training slide for the unit-says that February could be when the portable 3G/4G hotspot will be made available for your pocket.

all comments in 2010 with VZN and AT&T about 4g will be sad ( i cant wait, its comming, their working on it, almost here, blah, blah, blah). Sprint will have 4G phones first also

That is really awesome, mainly for the SD memory card sharing it does.

If it's Sprint branded then it most likely will be the same cost as the current MiFi. Guess vzw subs have to wait a little longer for their LTE MiFi while dealing with that cap
