It's like a better version of the MiFi and uses either Sprint's 4G WiMax (if available in your area) or 3G EVDO broadband service.
That's pretty much a very basic overview of it.

I have an Overdrive that my work provides for me. Don't waste your money.
I've updated the firmware and it really hasn't fixed the main problems. The claimed 4 hour battery life is realistically much closer to 2 hours. The device gets super hot when it's been on for 30 minutes. The 4G download speeds are no faster than my tethered iPhone 3G speeds. The upload speeds are marginally better than my tethered iPhone.
I have tons of Apple toys

I plan to buy the iPad 3G
And test out the Sprint 4G Overdrive device
If it works for me great, if not I will fall back to ATT 3G
I work out of my car and battery life is key
Would a car charger or replaceable battery for the Overdrive device be a solution?
