    The ClearSpot looks like a USB dongle connected to a Cradlepoint….not exactly a PocketSpot, more like TravelSpot.

    Indeed. Clearwire and Cradlepoint, I think, have promised an integrated version… Scott Richardson (Clearwire strategy guy) sez such a device is coming. When? Answer hazy, try again later.
