There isn't really much else to say about the thing other than it appears to have a hideaway USB connector and offers more speed. The modem will be offered for free in time for the faster 7.2Mbps service to launch in select cities.

 

The faster 7.2Mbps speeds are intended to hold us over until AT&T can get LTE rolled out in select area in 2010 and 2011. The modem will be available starting on November 22.
