Despite the fact that Clear has begun testing an LTE network, the company's releasing two new WiMax-based products: the Clear Spot Voyager personal hotspot and the Clear Hub Express wireless router.

Despite the fact that Clear has begun testing an LTE network, the company's releasing two new WiMax-based products. The Clear Spot Voyager is the company's latest personal hotspot, which can share a connection with up to eight Wi-Fi devices, should run for six hours on a charge, and will cost $124.99. The Clear Hub Express, on the other hand, is designed for in-home usage: it's both a modem and wireless router, provides a signal up to 150 feet away, and will retail for $99.99. With most of the industry (including Sprint, Clearwire's largest investor) moving away from WiMax, these devices might not be the smartest investment — but since Clear sells them contract-free, users won't be stuck paying for out-of-date service.
