It seems like only yesterday I was blogging T-Mobile’s new mobile WiFi device the ‘Wireless Pointer’ (actually, it was yesterday).
As before I’ve covered the key points over at the Mobile WiFi Challenge blog I’m running (sorry – last link of the week… promise) but for the very short attention span crowd here what you need to know:
- It’s not a Huawei device like everyone else’s – it’s made by Novatel (the people who made the first ever MiFi we looked at).
- Specs are very similar to the other devices on the market, but this baby packs an operating system capable of running applications and a GPS unit, which may differentiate it in future.
- Orange’s tariffs for the Mobile WiFi are the same as for dongle customers and they seem to have chopped the tariff with the highest bundled data allowance. At first look they’re still more expensive than Three, but may be attractive to existing Orange customers who get a £5 per month discount.
- It doesn’t have a silly name like ‘Wireless Pointer’.
There’s more detail on my other post along with a few questions I’m going to fire over to Orange.
More as we get it…
