The AT&T USBConnect Momentum 4G ($49.99) and the Mobile Hotspot Elevate 4G ($69.99) will both require a two-year contract. The USBConnect Momentum features an expandable microSD memory slot and will run on HSPA+ when out of range of the LTE network.

The Elevate is a hotspot that can connect up to five devices, and has a 1.77-inch display that shows the status of each device and is supposed to make setup quick and easy. It also has an expandable memory slot and can run on the company’s HSPA+ network.

The LTE network is due to roll out this summer in five markets — Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio — and the company hopes to have the network in 15 markets by the end of 2011.

AT&T also announced that the HP Touchpad 4G, which will run on the HSPA+ network, will be available “in time for back to school.” In addition to the 4G upgrade, the new 32GB tablet has a snappier 1.5 GHz processor and integrated GPS.
