Sprint iPhone 4G with Sierra Wireless Overdrive Router

For those waiting for the Apple iPhone 4G — which may or may not be launched in June or July — Sprint already has a solution for you. The Palm Pre carrier has an awesome gadget that will turn your iPhone 3GS in to a 4G version – the Sierra Wireless Overdrive Router.

Looking at the video below we are confused why Sprint would use the iPhone to help sell this new device, which they are calling the iPhone companion. Electronista As we know, the iPhone in the U.S. is limited with its 3G AT&T coverage, but using the 4G network will help to bring the smartphone alive.

As we know, Sprint uses WiMAX — offering speeds between 3Mbps and 6Mbps, this is twice as fast as what iPhone users currently get with AT&T. But, and this is a big but — this new service will cost $60 per month. This will be worth it if you stream loads of videos and music.

Other carriers are trying similar tactics to sell their products, Verizon are using the iPad to try to sell their MiFi routers. Would these sales tactics persuade you to purchase one of these products?
