New, I guess. But only certain devices can connect to it, and I'm unsure about what is meant by a browser version of the product is, but hopefully it means that you can connect pcs and use them normally without the ability to call or connect with automotive people.call It looks as if current Sprint customers may be able to get the device for free.
