Vodafone launches wi-fi hotspot in your hand
Vodafone takes mobile broadband to the next level with the launch of its MiFi mobile broadband hotspot.
The MiFi allows up to five wi-fi users to connect simultaneously to the internet using Vodafone’s world class 3G broadband service.
Customers will be able to take that brainstorming meeting to the café and share one connection on multiple laptops. Mobile gamers will be able to set up a LAN and play wirelessly. The MiFi even allows you to share documents stored on its MicroSD card (up to 16GB) and set access levels as you see fit.
Weighing in at only 100g it’s smaller than most cellphones and not much larger than a credit card. Battery powered, the MiFi will last up to four hours of continuous use before needing to be recharged making it a truly portable solution.
Vodafone’s GM of Products Pricing and Internet Kursten Shalfoon says Vodafone’s MiFi opens up the floodgates to a new world of mobility.
“Whether you want to work collaboratively on a project or just need to have multiple devices connecting together while you’re out and about, the MiFi gives you the best of Vodafone’s 3G broadband connection and combines it with all the benefits of wi-fi to deliver a great product.”
The MiFi is on sale from today exclusively through the Vodafone online store at an RRP of $499. Customers who buy the MiFi with a 1GB data plan get it at the discounted rate of $299.
