Kirkland, WA (PRWEB) September 10, 2010
Clearwire Corporation, provider of wireless broadband services and operator of the largest 4G network in the country, today announced the introduction of the CLEAR iSpot™, a personal hotspot with dedicated support for Apple’s line of mobile devices*, including the Apple iPad™, Apple iPod touch® and Apple iPhone®. The iSpot brings the speed and mobility of true mobile broadband to a user base primed for the rich online experience of 4G wireless internet service, and is available nationwide.
“With the iSpot, Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod touch customers don’t have to sort through confusing service plans with overage fees, nor do they have to worry about how much data they’re using,” said Thomas Enraght-Moony, senior vice president of marketing at Clearwire. “Instead, with the CLEAR iSpot, customers can run all of their Apple mobile devices at true broadband speeds for a single, simple monthly fee.”
The iSpot is CLEAR’s first 4G personal mobile hotspot made exclusively for Apple mobile products, including the Apple iPad, Apple iPhone, and Apple iPod touch devices. iSpot users can share 4G speed with up to eight Wi-Fi-enabled Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod touch mobile devices simultaneously. The CLEAR iSpot’s ergonomic design and white casing were specifically designed to complement the iconic image of Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod touch products.
Using CLEAR super fast mobile internet® service, Apple’s iPad, Apple’s iPod touch or Apple’s iPhone can access a rich mobile broadband experience with average mobile download speeds of 3 to 6 mbps with bursts over 10 mbps**. For example, using the CLEAR iSpot an Apple iPad user can stream unlimited movies or television shows via the Netflix app from home, work or on the go, while an Apple iPod user can stream Pandora® music or live sports play-by-play on the commute home.
The iSpot expands the CLEAR line of personal mobile hotspots, which includes the CLEAR Spot 4G and CLEAR Spot 4G+. With personal mobile hotspots, CLEAR provides thousands of Wi-Fi enabled devices, from iPads, iPhones and iPod touches and laptops to netbooks to personal gaming devices, the ability to access super fast mobile internet service anywhere in CLEAR coverage.
The iSpot is available nationwide online today and available in CLEAR retail stores and authorized dealers beginning August 10. The iSpot has an MSRP of $99.99*** and users can enjoy unlimited 4G data usage for an initial low monthly service offering of $25*** without a required term contract. In conjunction with today’s launch, new CLEAR customers can take advantage of a one-day introductory sale offering significant savings on the iSpot (and other CLEAR Spot devices) when activating qualified CLEAR mobile service. Special one-day pricing is available August 4, online only. You can also follow CLEAR on the Official CLEAR Blog or on twitter @Clear for more information on iSpot.
