Sprint expected to launch 3G/4G router

Sprint Nextel is expected to announce a WiMAX/EV-DO pocket-sized router called the Overdrive from Sierra Wireless. The device, which is expected to become available within the next few months, turns 3G and WiMAX signals into a local wireless network--much like the MiFi device from Novatel. Sprint is scheduled to hold a "4G event" at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas later this week, which is where the device could make its debut. Article
