Novatel Wireless Launches Ovation MC760 EVDO Rev-A USB Micro Modem

Novatel Wireless MC760 USB Micro Modem

Novatel Wireless Inc, a leading provider of wireless broadband solutions, today announced the continued evolution of its USB product line with the introduction of the Ovation™ MC760 Micro Modem. The MC760 is the world's smallest EVDO Rev. A USB modem, weighing less than an ounce and measuring just over two inches long.

The MC760 supports all computing devices equipped with Type A USB ports, including most desktops, notebooks and PDAs, to provide instant mobile broadband access anywhere a cellular signal is available. With out of the box support for a variety of operating systems including Windows® (Vista, XP, 2000), Mac® and Linux, the MC760 enables users to surf the Internet, check email and access important business documents with speeds faster than most cable or DSL connections.

We don't expect the Novatel MC760 to be available for another few months from carriers.

Looking at the latest Sprint Rebate forms, we noticed they do list a Novatel Ovation U760
, so we expect the MC760 to be call the Ovation U760 when released from Sprint. Looking at Verizon's naming convention, we would expect this device to be called the Novatel USB760 if ever released from Verizon.
