(Update 4) Leaked Pictures: P1 USB WiMAX Modem

Remember my older post “P1 to launch USB WiMAX modem“?

Here’s some leaked pictures of the P1 WiMAX USB Modem:

Full details about the modem and package will be revealed on Thursday. A story about this new modem should be up on the Mobile World website by Thursday, so keep an eye on the MW website.

Packet One is rumored to have only one WiMAX package for this modem. P1 has declined to comment on pricing as it will be revealed on Thursday however sources close to P1 said that price will be between RM90-RM150 and comes with the modem.

Update 1: I wrote earlier that it is between RM50-RM90, my mistake, the error has been corrected, it should be RM90-RM150.
