Does anyone here know if this device utilize a battery? I don't see any battery life listed on Rogers' LTE website. Will the hotspot be locked to Rogers' network?

and yes, it is locked to Rogers.
It is not very reliable though, at least mine. Restarts itself every now and then.
It is also dual carrier capable and even without LTE pulls some really nice download and upload speeds. You can also use it in USB tethering mode - in this mode I have seen download speeds of 48Mbps and upload up to 20. Pings are around 30ms which is really nice. But for use in USB mode you rather get the LTE rocket stick, it provides very reliable connection.

...any info on FIDO sim working on these..?
I have a 754S from AT&T. I unlocked it using DC Unlocker (http://www.dc-unlocker.com/).
I've also noticed the same reliability issues. It randomly reboots and sometimes has difficulty finding a network. From time to time it refuses to find any network until I do a battery pull, then it's fine for a few days.
I also have this device and have noticed the random resets, although I've been using it alot in non-4G areas so I thought maybe it was due to poor signal in my location.
Incidentally, the device I had went dead and I've called Rogers for a replacement. The one they sent me was a refurbished device - Is this normal for the carrier to replace a dead device with a refurb?
I bought one of these unlocked on Amazon.com for $150. I have used it in the US with an AT&T SIM. I am no trying to figure out what the best way to use this in Canada is - can I add an LTE SIM only data plan to my Blackberry plan? What about my wife's iPhone data plan?

Will this unit also work in Europe and Asia? On Sierra Wireless's webpage, it shows that it works on the 1900mhz frequency UMTS . I do travel a lot and I've been thinking about buying two units (one for North America and the other for Europe and Asia). However, if the 754S works globally on 3G even though it's not quadband on 3G, that will still do if it saves me from buying two units.
I don't know what frequencies that they use in all countries but I think it should work in most countries. I was just in the UK for a few days and I have a 3 (which is a wireless company in the UK and elsewhere) microSIM that I have used in my iPad in the past although it has now expired and needs to be reloaded. I put this into my Sierra with an adapter and I was able to connect to the 3 network but I couldn't do anything since it needed reloading. I also couldn't figure out how to add more data. When I put this card in my ipad I can at least get to their carrier's web pages (three.co.uk) but I couldn't do this when I put the card in my Sierra.
