Sprint tries to speed up iPad with Overdrive 4G case

So far, the iPad can only connect to the Internet via Wi-Fi (in most places, but not all) and 3G when that edition is released before the end of the month. But Sprint has a way to get your iPad on the 4G network with the help of their signature Overdrive hotspots.

So far, the iPad can only connect to the Internet via Wi-Fi (in most places, but not all) and 3G when that edition is released before the end of the month.

But Sprint has a way to get your iPad on the 4G network with the help of their signature Overdrive hotspots.

Sprint has released a bulky, but rather powerful iPad case bundled with an Overdrive 3G/4G Hotspot modem. And not only can you connect your iPad to the 4G network, but also up to four other Wi-Fi enabled devices as well.

The Overdrive 4G Hotspot can last up to three and a half hours on a single battery charge and should be compatible with most Wi-Fi ready devices. It would be great to have a speedier network to work on, but it seems like a lot to carry around. Sprint has it priced at $399 without a contract, but it's only available at Best Buy stores in 13 states. Is it worth the road trip?
