Novatel’s MiFi 4082 packs WiMAX, gets rubber-stamped by FCC

Today, the FCC gave Novatel Wireless’ MiFi 4082 the U.S. Government’s official seal of approval. What makes the 4082 unique from other MiFi devices, you ask? The addition of a WiMAX radio of course. The device will sport a CDMA radio capable of 1xRTT and EV-DO data along with a more attractive, 4G-ish, WiMAX option. If we had to venture a guess, we would expect to see the 4082 hit wireless carrier Sprint sometime in January of 2011.

Wi-Fi only Samsung Galaxy Tab crosses FCC’s desk

Wi-Fi only Samsung Galaxy Tab crosses FCC’s desk

It looks like the Wi-Fi only variant of the Samsung Galaxy Tab — a device Samsung said they were working on that recently made an appearance in a Best Buy advert — has crossed the FCC’s desk. The only difference between the carrier branded Tab and the Wi-Fi only Tab, other than the absence of a cellular radio (duh!), is the device’s model number: GT-P1010. If Best Buy’s advertisement-oopsie was accurate, we should see the Wi-Fi device priced around $499; $100 less than an unsubsidized 3G model. What do you think? Worth it?
