As the name suggests, the new modem allows customers to bring wireless Clear 4G services to homes or offices.
You can buy the Clear Modem with Wi-Fi for $120, or you can lease it for $7 per month. Note that you need to subscribe to a monthly data service of at least $35. The modem is available now online (here), in Clear retails stores, and at authorized dealers.
In other Clearwire news, the company might launch an Android smartphone in February 2011. According to Wimax SATX (via PocketNow), Clear’s first Android handset could be the Samsung Notion – a slider with a full QWERTY keyboard, maybe somewhat similar to the Epic 4G that’s available at Sprint. Speaking of which, Sprint’s Evo 4G might also be released on Clear sometime after the Notion.
Samsung has recently applied for a USPTO trademark for the name Notion (as you can see above), so the device does seem to exist. We’ll bring more info as we get it.
