by Shane McGlaun

Sprint was the early backer of the WiMAX flavor of 4G mobile Internet access. Sprint and Clearwire operate WiMAX service in a few major cities around the country and are promising to add more cities this year and next.

For the users that are in a city that already has WiMAX Clearwire announced a new accessory today that works in conjunction with one of the WiMAX USB modems. The device is called the CLEAR Spot Personal Hotspot Accessory.

When a Clearwire WiMAX USB modem is plugged into the hotspot device the 4G connectivity can be shared amongst up to eight Wi-Fi equipped devices. The devices can connect at 802.11b/g speeds and download data at up to 4Mbps. Clearwire says the device will be available this month for $139 at Clear stores and authorized dealers.
