Earlier this morning we awoke to the news that AT&T will be releasing a new USB Modem that will have a small LCD screen. It was announced to run on AT&T’s 4G LTE network, but the release did not contain an image to share with you, until now.
Now we can you show you the new device, which will allow your laptop to run the AT&T Beam from Sierra Wireless. The device will release on May 10th and customers can buy the AT&T Beam from AT&T stores and online for $19.99 with a two-year commitment.
According to AT&T Beam runs on AT&T 4G LTE, which AT&T plans “to cover 300 million people by the end of 2014” according to the report. The screen allows the Beam to display information like a network indicator, signal strength, and data usage. The AT&T Beam includes an expandable memory slot that supports microSDTM cards up to 32 GB in size, another great option for storing and transferring documents quickly and easily. With its global roaming capabilities, you can travel internationally and stay connected in more than 210 countries.
“The LCD screen on the AT&T Beam really makes it stands out from traditional USB modems,” said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president, devices and developer services, AT&T. “This added feature provides real-time information with just a glance. With the support of the nation’s fastest 4G network, our customers have even more flexibility to stay productive wherever they are, giving them more control of their mobile experience.”
AT&T Beam offers quick and easy setup with plug and play software installation. And in addition to Windows 7 support, AT&T Beam is certified for Windows 8 and Windows RT laptops and tablets, making it easy to stay productive on the go. The connectivity software, AT&T AllAccess, also provides Windows 7 laptop users the ability to create a mobile hotspot that can share the nation’s fastest 4G network with up to 10 Wi-Fi enabled devices.
