Option GlobeSurfer III 3G Wi-Fi Hotspot Has a Screen and USB Port

Option's cool little 3G router makes a WiFi hotspot out of a 3G signal, providing pretty good download/upload speeds in the process. It'll also let you plug in networked devices like hard drives and printers.

The GlobeSurfer features a built-in screen that'll let you control its various options, and impressive speeds: download is 7.2 Mbps and upload is 5.76 Mbps. It's got a USB port for networked peripherals as well. Unfortunately, it does require a power supply, so it may not be great for camping trips, but it's a nice proof of concept. Pricing and release date haven't been released, but it shouldn't be far off. [Electronista]
