Summary:

Sprint wants iPad owners to know they can use its Overdrive modem with the iPad. The combination allows any iPad to be used on the Sprint 4G network. To promote this, Sprint is giving a nice case away that is tailored to fit the two gadgets.

Sprint has been quick to push the use of its Overdrive modem with the iPad. The combination allows the Wi-Fi model of the iPad to be used on the Sprint 4G (WiMAX) network where available. To promote this usage case, Sprint has been giving a case away that is tailored to fit the iPad and the Overdrive modem. I received a case to review today, and it’s a decent solution for carrying both gadgets around town.

The case is solidly constructed and fits the iPad and Overdrive exactly. The fit is so tight that the iPad will only fit in the case by itself — even the thin Apple Case is too bulky to use with the Sprint case. The Sprint 4G Case is as thin and light as can be, and it’s free from Sprint when you buy an Overdrive at participating Best Buy stores.

  1. SO bummed!!! I bought my Overdrive last month and I am not in a 4G market so no case for me! Hoping one shows up on eBay, Sprint should really be selling these I want one bad!

    1. The overdrive has 3g also…

  2. Am I the only one who can’t scroll through the pictures on these posts lately? On Mac OSX 10.6.3, Firefox 3.6.3

    1. I had the problem a few weeks ago with Vista & IE8, then used compatatibility mode and it worked. However, this week I can’t scroll through picts again either.

    2. yea same is here is pissing me off……..James??????????

  3. Pictures don’t scroll on iPad either lol.

    An update to WordPress has broken the picture galleries. It’s being worked on feverishly. Please bear with us.

  5. The only issue I can see is that it places a hard plastic box in the middle of the screen. Any force on the Overdrive will be directed to the middle of the glass screen… Is there some form of plate to prevent screen damage?

  6. For those of us that got our Overdrive direct from Sprint (and don’t have James’ special access) I accidentally found this page via Google today, which may provide some hope:

  7. I picked up an Overdrive and Sprint case last Friday at a Houston Best Buy but the case I received isn’t the same design. My case also has the sprint logo tab on the side but the top is zippered without a flap and the overdrive pocket is held closed with velcro.

  8. I think this is a pretty genius case for sprint to come up with… that is, the idea is genius, but the case looks ugly and bulky.

    Combine the wifi functionality of this case with the sleek and modern look of the Quirky Cloak (see here http://www.quirky.com/products/30?r=7d1c1c25df0a00342469417b967ecac7)

    And then I think you’ll have a huge hit on your hands

  9. The case looks very nice but the real question is if he really can protect thw iPad and what is the expecting demage to the device after broken or just simple fall.
