AT&T has introduced a GPS-enabled USB device, the USBConnect Velocity from Option. The Velocity is the first GPS-enabled LaptopConnect device from AT&T, opening the door to location-based applications, AT&T said.
Option offers a free software application, the Option GPS Control Panel, that leverages location-enabled sites such as Yahoo! Maps and Bing for directions and local points of interest. Option GPS Control Panel is available for download on the Option support web page. Additionally, through TeleNav Track LITE and Xora GPS Locator from AT&T, enterprise customers can add tracking and location awareness, improving response time by locating the closest worker to a service call, AT&T said.
The device features an integrated micro SD-card slot, making it a portable storage device that allows users to carry the data and files they need.
AT&T USBConnect Velocity is available AT&T retail stores and online for $29.99 after mail-in rebate and a new two-year DataConnect contract of at least $35 a month (pay $129.99 and after mail-in rebate receive $100 AT&T Promotion Card. Two-year agreement and DataConnect plan required).
