I’ve had the Novatel Ovation U720 from Sprint working on my MacBook Pro for a couple months, but it required initializing it on a PC and then a type of hack job to get it to work so it is great to see some official support now available. EV-DO Rev. A is awesome and hopefully I can now use the Sprint location-based features on my MacBook Pro and will have to give that a try.
