Announced last month, AT&T is releasing two new mobile hotspot devices, the USBConnect Momentum 4G and Mobile Hotspot Elevate 4G on August 21. Both devices will offer up 4G LTE connectivity for $50 a month for 5GB data, and $10 for each additional GB. The Momentum 4G will run you $49.99 with a two-year contract and after a $50 mail-in-rebate. The Elevate 4G will cost you $69.99 on a 2-year contract and a $50 mail-in rebate.

Also of note is those of you with a USBConnect Adrenaline, you’ll be getting an upgrade on August 26 to 4G LTE support via a software download.  You’ll be able to go to (not yet active) to grab the software and start cruising the Internet while out of your office at 4G speeds if you’re in a coverage area.

Thus far only five markets have been announced for AT&T’s LTE service – Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio – and those are due to go live some time later this summer.  Of course, more markets are planned for the future, but it may be a while before you can enjoy 4G LTE everywhere you currently get AT&T service.  Until then, you will still get to enjoy HSPA+ speeds as you move in and out of those areas.

Here’s a reminder of what you can expect from the Momentum and Elevate.
