Mac users have some good news today. Clear has announced some 4G networking hardware with a focus on Macs. The Sierra Wireless-made 4G+ Mobile USB is its first dual 3G and 4G modem that supports Macs and gives them an EVDO data connection fallback when 4G coverage is poor or non-existent. It will work with Mac OS X Leopard or later and will cost $115 outright or $6 a month.
The Spot 4G is a 4G-only mobile router for those who like to stay in Clear’s coverage. It shares WiMAX with up to eight other devices over W-Fi. The Spot 4G+ is just a rebranding of Sprint’s Overdrive with a 3G option and up to five devices sharing the network.
The Spot 4G costs just $100 up front or $5 a month, while the Spot 4G+ costs $225 immediately or $6 per month.
