Leaked Verizon FiveSpot MiFi To Feature Dual CDMA/GSM Radios

A tipster within Verizon sent pictures of an unannounced new WiFi hotspot/MiFi to tech blog Engadget this past week. The “FiveSpot” as it’s called, won’t be just any Verizon hotspot – as its “Global Ready” with room for a GSM SIM Card and full UMTS (3G) support.

Not much was released about the “FiveSpot” other than it’s awesome name, some pictures, and the news that it’s global ready. I would imagine that it’ll be configured for European 3G bands only (2100 MHz), so don’t get any ideas about using this with a T-Mobile or AT&T SIM card (although that would surely be awesome – Verizon probably doesn’t think so).
No idea on how much this would cost – but Verizon’s current mobile broadband offerings range in price from free (on the USB modem) to $80 for their existing USB global modem (both prices are with two-year contract).
Despite being a CDMA carrier, Verizon is pretty global-friendly. A number of their phones have room for SIM cards for international travel, and they offer “Global Ready” mobile internet devices already, but they’re only USB modems – not WiFi devices like this “FiveSpot” looks to be.
Nothing yet on pricing. We’ll keep you advised as soon as we hear more.
