Sprint has just announced their newest 3G/4G hybrid device, the Sprint 3G/4G USB U600, modem by Franklin Wireless.   Compared to its predecessors the U300 & U301, the U600 is  significantly smaller, but still offers the USB swivel that we loved  about the U301, which allows you to position the device at different  angles to get better reception or to keep the device from getting bumped  into.

What we like about the  U600′s design the most is the the USB swivel connector, which Franklin  has been using for their devices for quite some time. The USB swivel connector allows users to position the aircard at different angles (up  to 270 degrees) for better signal reception or to keep the device from being in the way (laptop users in particular tend to really appreciate  this feature, since it means that their modem isn’t sticking out too far while they move their laptops around!).

Bottom Line:

There  are several things about the U600 that we think will make it the best  3G/4G mobile broadband choice for most users, especially road warriors.  The most notable feature is the variety of antenna ports that the U600 offers. For road warriors and users in fringe areas, having the variety of antenna ports for 3G & 4G can make the difference of having a reliable signal and not being able to connect at all. We are very relieved to see that manufacturers are now including antenna ports on  3G/4G devices, as hybrid devices didn’t offer antenna ports at all until  the 250U (the first hybrid device to offer usable antenna ports). The  Sprint U600 one-ups the 250U by providing a second WiMAX antenna port  for increased signal gain and an antenna port for GPS, which is a first on any mobile broadband device. Having an external antenna for A-GPS will provide more accurate GPS results for users who want to track their  trip progress or want to monitor their fleet of trucks, etc.Another notable feature of the U600 that is common with Franklin Wireless  devices is compatibility. The Sprint U600 just works with nearly anything you connect it to. With the included Sprint SmartView software  that comes on the U600 itself, it is compatible with both Windows & Mac OS X. The U600 is also compatible with just about every 3G/4G mobile broadband router that 3Gstore.com offers and is also compatible with some of the more popular distributions of Linux as well. No other 3G/4G mobile broadband device offers that kind of compatibility!

With previous hybrid  devices from Franklin like the U300 & U301, the average speeds we  saw when connected to a 4G network where about 3-4mbps. With the Sprint U600 we’re seeing average speeds of 6mbit/sec, with max speeds of up to 12mbps depending on location & signal quality. We believe that the new Beceem 4G chipset that Franklin is putting in the U600 improves the 4G performance compared to it’s predecessors, making the U600 the best  3G/4G hybrid device for 4G use.

In short, the U600 is by far the most impressive 3G/4G device to hit the market to date!
