Great news from Sierra Wireless AirLink about the AT&T LTE version of the GX400/GX440. It should be shipping in July 2012.
The Sierra Wireless GX400 HSPA+ AT&T WWAN device will not start shipping as previously reported on September 30th. Initial ship dates have been pushed back to October 30th.
Yesterday Sierra Wireless released an LTE Evolution program for their HSPA+ GX400s that mimics the program that they already have in place for the upgrade of the Verizon Wireless EVDO REV A GX400s to LTE. This brilliant piece of marketing allows a future upgrade to LTE for fee for this option paid up front. It is like buying into the LTE futures market. For clients with money to spend now, but a mandate to move to LTE when it rolls out, this program may fit the bill exactly. The part numbers are below:
