VANCOUVER, March 4 - Sierra Wireless today introduced the latest, and the smallest, addition to its USB modem product ine. Scheduled for commercial availability early in the second quarter of this year, the Compass(TM) 597 USB modem combines high-speed mobile broadband ccess to EV-DO Revision A networks with a microSD card slot for convenient storage, all in a cleanly designed USB stick that is smaller than any available today.

The Sierra Wireless Compass 597 USB modem is remarkably small and yet feature-rich, with TRU-Install(TM) software installation to simplify setup(*)and a microSD memory card slot for expanded functionality.

"The Compass 597 USB modem combines high-speed mobile broadband and expandable storage in an attractive device that installs its own drivers and software and is small enough to hide in the palm of my hand, making it an easy choice for customers looking for a practical, simple way to work or stay in touch while on the go," said Trent Punnett, senior vice president, Marketing and Corporate Development, for Sierra Wireless.
