Tiny AT&T Quicksilver USB modem looks thumbdrive-y

att_usbconnectquicksilver_l At first glance, you might mistake this doodad on the left for an ordinary, run-of-the-mill thumbdrive. Don’t be fooled! It’s a 3G modem from AT&T called the USBConnect Quicksilver.

If you’re a weakling, you’ll love this thing because it weighs less than an ounce. Everyone, and I mean everyone, can lift one ounce, so less than one once should be a cakewalk.

According to SlashPhone the Quicksilver is the first device of its kind to use the new Icera Livanto chipset, which accounts for its pocketability. The modem handles GSM/GPRS/EDGE/3G data.

The price with a two-year contract is $100 plus there’s a $100 mail-in rebate available, which makes this little guy a wheel of a deal. Just don’t lose it, eh?
