Sprint to produce EVDO router and USB dongle

Owners of mobile PCs that lack a PC Card slot rejoice, at least if you are Sprint customers. Sprint has announced two new devices that bring EVDO to their customers in a big (or small) way. The first device is a Linksys router that accepts current EVDO PC Cards to share your EVDO connection via WiFi. The second device and the one I am most excited about is an EVDO USB dongle for use with devices like the UMPC/ Origami that lack a PC Card slot. Sprint says both devices should be out the last half of the year. Woot!

Sprint is really leading the way with the introduction of this router. It would seem they are actually encouraging their customers to share their EVDO connection, which is the opposite stance most carriers take. Kudos to Sprint.
