Towards the beginning of July the Clearwire Clear Spot 4G Apollo hotspot was seen at the FCC and now the device has made it’s way one step closer to store shelves with a price tag of $99 and also the Spot 4G-Apollo is different from the other devices to date simply because it is touted to have its very own display that goes one up on all those LEDs on current routers. Like all mobile hot-spot routers, the Apollo connects to a cellular wireless network by itself and shares the connection via its built-in wireless access point, which means Wi-Fi clients such as laptops, game consoles, or even smartphones can get connected conveniently…………….
