AT&T Unite mobile hotspot includes touch-screen display

AT&T said it will carry a new LTE-enabled mobile hotspot from Sierra Wireless that is branded the AT&T Unite and features 2.4" touch-screen display. The device can connect up to 10 Wi-Fi-enabled devices, including a guest hotspot for one-time users. Customers can manage connected devices, change network and device settings as well as block unwanted devices from joining the network, all directly from the touch-screen display. AT&T did not release pricing for the AT&T Unite. In November, the operator introduced the Novatel Wireless MiFi Liberate, also an LTE mobile hotspot with a touch-screen and the capability of connecting 10 Wi-Fi-enabled devices. That device sells for $49.99. Under terms of AT&T's shared-data plans, customers who have a smartphone can add a mobile hotspot device to a Mobile Share plan for an additional $20 a month.
