Check out our Sprint 598U Review on EVDOinfo.com


Sprint will be announcing a new USB Modem on 01/09/09 called the Sprint 598U by Sierra Wireless.

Features of the Sierra Wireless 598U include:

- Vista, XP, Mac OS X Support (doesn't fit in MacBook Air - but does work with included cable)
- Tru Install, NO CD needed to install
- GPS Support
- MicroSD Slot
- Antenna Port (yes, we have antenna adapters, so all booster, omni, RV, magnetic mount, yagis, work with it - see 598U antenna options )
- Sprint Smartview Support

CradlePoint already supports the 598U in the latest MBR1000 and CTR500 firmware.

We already have these in stock for the AirCard 598U launch.

The 598U will sell for $29.99, PLUS there is a Sprint $50 Mail-in Rebate (so you make $20). If you already have a Sprint account and want to upgrade, the price is $249.99.

Neither the USB598 nor the Compass597 contain a miniPCIe card - they are physically too small.

AC595U was the only Sierra USB modem to have a miniPCIe inside.

Please let us know what is the difference between the 597 and 598.

Is the 598 a true upgrade, better quality/features device? or is it an inferior quality product when compared to the 597.

I would like to get one of these but don't want to get the wrong one.

No, the KR1 and 598U are not compatible with one another.

When using this on a Unibody Macbook Pro, does it block the other USB port (when not using the cable) like the Compass does?

Yes, the USB ports are blocked on the unibody 15 inch MacBook Pro.

Well that's just epic fail on Apple's part...guess I'll have to live with a cable or get the expresscard.

Not really Apple's fault, just about every laptop has USB ports spaced the same way. If you plug in a device that is too big, it is going to block adjacent ports. Luckily, if you need those blocked ports, you can use the supplied USB cable and all is well.

I have an external antenna with adapter cable to Merlin S720. Will this fit the 598U?

Thanks,
Dennis

Is the Mail-In Rebate in the box? I'll look again, but I don't recall seeing it. Download link?

Thanks,
