Clearwire early Wimax adopters will soon be able to buy a portable wi-fi router that will broadcast your ultra-fat 4G pipe to everyone within range of your pocketable little router.

Sidecut Reports spotted the little rig (in prototype form here) at Clearwire's Portland WiMax launch. It's basically a Cradlepoint device (it may even be made by them, as this Sprint EV-DO router is), and it will supposedly be on sale for around $125 by February in Clearwire's launch markets.
