Clearwire Corp. (http://www.clearwire.com), a provider of wireless broadband services, has announced CLEAR iSpot, a personal hotspot with dedicated support for Apple’s line of mobile devices, including the iPad, iPod touch and iPhone.
The iSpot brings the speed and mobility of true mobile broadband to a user base primed for the rich online experience of 4G, says Thomas Enraght-Moony, senior vice president of marketing at Clearwire. With CLEAR, customers can run all of their Apple mobile devices at true broadband speeds for a single, simple monthly fee, he adds.
The iSpot is CLEAR’s first 4G personal mobile hotspot made exclusively for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch devices. iSpot users can share 4G speed with up to eight Wi-Fi-enabled Apple mobile devices simultaneously. The CLEAR iSpot’s ergonomic design and white casing were specifically designed to complement the iconic image of Apple products.
Using CLEAR super fast mobile Internet service, Apple’s iPad, iPod touch or iPhone can access average mobile download speeds of 3 to 6 mbps with bursts over 10 mbps, says Enraght-Moony. For example, using the CLEAR iSpot an iPad user can stream unlimited movies or television shows via the Netflix app from home, work or on the go, while an iPod user can stream Pandora music or live sports play-by-play on the commute home, he adds.
The iSpot expands the CLEAR line of personal mobile hotspots, which includes the CLEAR Spot 4G and CLEAR Spot 4G+. The iSpot will beavailable nationwide beginning Aug. 10 at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of US$99.99. Clearwire offers unlimited 4G data usage for an initial monthly service offering of $25 without a required term contract. In conjunction with today’s launch, new CLEAR customers can take advantage of a one-day introductory sale offering significant savings on the iSpot (and other CLEAR Spot devices) when activating qualified CLEAR mobile service.
