Clearwire Launches Limited Edition Red Hot Spot

Clearwire is one of those companies that tends to stay under the radar when it comes to launching new products, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t do a big launch every once in a while. While the company is working on becoming one of the largest LTE providers in the United States and mulling a potential takeover bid from Dish Network, it has also managed to come up with a brand new Hot Spot device just in time for Valentine’s Day.

If you have someone special in your life who is quite the little techie, then Clearwire’s latest offering might be just the ticket for the perfect Valentine’s gift. Clearwire is making the red Limited Edition CLEAR Spot Voyager available between now and Valentine’s Day. This little device will allow people who might be out and about or somewhere with no Wi-Fi connection the ability to get online. 

“We understand that our customers’ devices are often as much about staying up with the current trends as they are about staying connected,” Dow Draper, senior vice president and general manager of retail at Clearwire said in a statement announcing the device. “The new red Limited Edition CLEAR Spot Voyager is an obvious choice for those looking to make a statement and stand out for reasons beyond using one of the few truly unlimited1 4G products available today.”

The red CLEAR Spot Voyager is a personal mobile hotspot that will allow not only the user to get online, but also share Internet access with anyone they so choose (including the significant other who gave it to them.) The Hot Spot can actually offer Internet access for up to as many as eight different devices and can run unplugged for about six hours. Obviously you’ll also need a data plan to go with it, but the device itself carries a very affordable price tag of $49.99 per unit.
