Verizon Wireless Rolls Out a Global Wireless Modem

Illustration for article titled 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]

My standard vacation e-mail is as follows:

"If I loved you and my work enough to reply to your e-mail while on vacation, I would not take one. Please contact my supervisor, God, or wait 'till I get back as any of the aforementioned will get you the same result"

"Blow Me" is better, but a bit too trite for business.
