Sierra Wireless has joined forces with White Box Design in the design of the 250U 3G/4G Modem for Sprint.
What really sets the 250U appart from the ubiquious USB stick or any other predecessor, is its very unique form factor. The device also has a 180-degree rotating hinge allowing it to swivel left or right and to tilt backwards or forwards.
