\"AT&TAT&T has formally announced the AT&T Unite, an LTE mobile hotspot from Sierra Wireless that lets users connect their devices to Wi-Fi or AT&T’s zippy 4G network from a compatible location. The Unite will be available through AT&T on February 9, and will only cost $1 – when attached to a two-year contract.

The Unite comes with a 2.4-inch touchscreen display for managing networks and connected devices, which isn’t so different from AT&T’s first LTE mobile hotspot, the MiFi Liberate. It can connect up to 10 devices at a time through Wi-Fi, and can serve as a guest network for “one-time users.” AT&T claims that the Unite has 10 hours of battery life.

As previously mentioned, the Unite is tied to a two-year contract from AT&T, and it can be added to an existing individual data or Mobile Share plan. AT&T’s individual data plans for mobile hotspots currently start at $50 a month for 5 GB. That pesky contract may irk some, and the battery life sounds like it could\’ve been higher without a color touchscreen, but AT&T users looking for added connectivity might want to look further into the Unite if they can afford it.
