Wouldn't you know it, we just pick our damn selves up a Verizon V640 EV-DO ExpressCard device and Sierra goes and announces the next gen Rev. A version we are gonna just have to plunk down for. Unfortunately Sierra didn't release a photo of their AirCard 597E (so what else is new -- pictured is their current AirCard 595
), but there's not a whole lot to be seen; it's all in the specs. The interesting thing will be the ExpressCard34-to-PCMCIA adapter that should come bundled with the device, but we're less worried about how to get it into our boxes and more concerned with getting that full 3.1Mbps / 1.8Mbps of throughput while we're out and about.
