Verizon Wireless Rolls Out a Global Wireless Modem

Combining previously separated 3G modems for North American CDMA networks and foreign GSM networks, Verizon Wireless has come out with a single device—the Novatel USB1000 global wireless modem—that features both technologies in one.

Starting tomorrow, Verizon's wireless global modem can be purchased for $149.99 (after a $50 mail-in rebate) with a two-year contact, with plans starting from $129.99 per month. Although very convenient like their global BlackBerrys models, now there's no excuse for why you weren't able to get any work done while relaxing on the Côte d'Azur. [Verizon via TWICE]
