This is the successor to the CLEAR USB modem, and offers some nice benefits over the original. Its internal antenna has been improved for better reception, and it consumes much less power (very important if you're using it in your laptop and your laptop is not plugged in). It also has a hinged/swivel design, meaning you can flip it up instead of having it stick straight out of your laptop. The most exciting aspect of the PXU1900, though, is that it can be used with the optional USB Performance Dock, which also debuted today, for better signal.
Like the original CLEAR USB modem, the Ubee PXU1900 is compatible with both Macs and PCs. As far as routers go, at launch it is only compatible with the PHS300 and MBR 1000, but we anticipate that it will be compatible with other Cradlepoint modems in the near future.
Just plug the CLEAR 4G Mobile USB into any standard USB port on your laptop to get online anywhere in CLEAR coverage. This portable device is small enough to fit in your pocket for the ultimate in mobility and is also compatible with the Cradlepoint PHS300 and MBR 1000 routers so that you can share your WiMAX connection with multiple computers/devices!
