Samsung had signaled Big Red's intention to replace its old, non-3G Network Extender as early as CES in January this year -- something Sprint did a couple months back -- but only now are they getting official with the updated model. The aptly-named 3G Network Extender is a warmed-over version of the original, boosting simultaneous connection capability from four to six (Sammy's specs at CES had it listed for eight, interestingly) and offering EV-DO coverage in the event that your home, office, or other location of interest isn't blanketed with Verizon spectrum. The company claims it'll work for up to 40 feet surrounding the device, which seems reasonable considering your average home is rife with RF-hating barriers. There are no monthly fees for the device, but you'll be shelling out $249.99 upfront; it's available now. Follow the break for Verizon's press release.
