Novatel went ahead and released a new USB EV-DO dongle on Verizon and Sprint. The Ovation U727 is the world’s smallest dongle and features an integrated microSD slot. Those are pretty much all the details you really need. Road warriors will probably appreciate this more than most because they know how much real estate previous dongles take up near the ports. My AirCard 595U is one obese chunky monkey and using the USB extender is a pain in the ass.
The 727 will be available starting next month for $79.99 with two-year agreement on Sprint and $149.99 on Verizon. Plans vary by carrier.
