Though it was predated by a usable hack, the Pantech UML290 USB modem -- one of just two devices launched so far for Verizon's LTE network -- has finally been blessed with an official Mac OS driver. What does this mean? Well, technically, it means that this is the very first time Mac users are getting any LTE love in the US whatsoever -- though with that Samsung-sourced mobile hotspot on the horizon, USB modems might be a tough sale at this point. On a bright note, the availability of the driver today means that Verizon beat its own estimate of February; the UML290's counterpart from LG, the VL600, is still Windows-only, though we imagine that'll be hitting soon as well.
