Option USB GlobeSurfer iCON HSUPA Modem

The world is shedding its wires and I, for one, am thrilled. Option has just announced a USB version of its GlobeSurfer HSUPA modem. The device offers the ability to suck in a 7.2Mbps downstream and pump out a 2Mbps upstream.

It features a swivel USB head so it should be able to easily fit any USB port, despite bothersome casings or whatever. It supposedly offers plug and play capability and is backward compatible with EDGE, GPRS and GSM. The modem also has tri-band/quad-band support and works on basically every OS imaginable.

No word yet on pricing or availability.
