Sprint, Novatel Bring EV-DO to MacBook Pro

We Mac users have been left out in the cold when it comes to 3G wireless for the most part, but Sprint and Novatel are here to settle the score. The EX720 ExpressCard is an EV-DO Rev. A card that grants your MacBook Pro the ability to access the Internet on the go at an impressive 1.4Mbps via its ExpressCard slot. And it will ship with OS X drivers.

This means no insane Googling for third party or OEM drivers, an evil currently necessary for OS X users. In addition to drivers, the card also includes GPS software for the Mac, and will be available “soon” from Sprint retailers and online for $179.99 with contract.
