Illustration for article titled ATT 3G MicroCell Could Hit Select Markets In The Next Week

If you are an iPhone owner anxiously awaiting the release of AT&T's first femtocell device, the payoff may be coming in the next few days for select markets that include: Atlanta, San Antonio, Seattle and North Carolina.


According to Zacks Investment Research, the 3G Microcell is expected to launch in "the next week" and full rollout should happen by the end of the year. In case you haven't heard, AT&T's Microcell acts like a mini tower that will boost 3G reception in homes with poor network coverage. Keep in mind that there has been no official confirmation on this thus far, and the initial markets could include more cities if and when AT&T finally rolls out the hardware. [Yahoo via Engadget]
