FreedomPop to launch new LTE service for tablets
According to Forbes, the free wireless start-up service FreedomPop is going to expand the scope of opportunities it provides by releasing a new offer for the owners of tablets with Android or iOS systems. The new product, as shown by its name – ‘LTE clip’ – represents a device that will attach to the wireless-only tablet.
How does LTE clip function? It practically turns the device it clips to into a tablet, capable of using 4g, provided it is located in the coverage of Sprint. The clip’s weight is only 2,5 ounces. It will take the role of a hotspot, able to provide connection for up to 8 devices at one time with life of the battery of about 6 hours. The free data included into the packet for a month will be 500 MB, and after it is used up, the users may purchase more and pay with money or with special credits that can be earned by inviting friends to start using the service
The company hasn’t yet made an official statement, but Forbes foresees the new service available about late mid-2013. We can only patiently wait and hope that FreedomPop will continue their successful series of useful services and utilities for the lovers of hi-tech and mobile communications.
