During SXSW it's about staying connected. Blog posts, Twitter updates, Facebook updates, Foursquare, Gowalla...getting connected and staying connected is critical to a productive convergence of original music, independent films, and emerging technologies. The services being used may change but to quote musical legend David Byrne, 'Same As it Ever Was.'
But this year SXSW attendees have something new: Sprint 4G and the Sprint Overdrive. The Overdrive is the first dual-mode shareable device of its kind-available only from Sprint and here is a sample of what we are hearing in Austin:
'This [Sprint Overdrive] is going to help sell a lot of WiFi enabled iPads. Apple should thank you.
-Guy Kawasaki, co-founder of Alltop and technology futurist
'The [Sprint Overdrive] is working well in my hotel room"
-MG Siegler, Techcrunch.com
