sex appeal slim, stylish design, and you end up with the Netcomm MyZone 3G router. And after our brief hands on with the unit back in March, it’s finally available now.
The device is being sold exclusively through Apple retail stores, can support up to 10 wi-fi devices simultaneously and has a built in Li-ion battery that offers six hours worth of wireless hotspot goodness. When it’s not actively sucking down the data, Netcomm claims you’ll get about 40 hours worth of juice as well.
The device is tri-band, working on the 850, 900 and 2100MHz frequencies, which means it’s perfect for NextG, and will work with all the other networks in city areas. It supports 7.2Mbps HSDPA and 5.76Mbps HSUPA, and sells for $299 outright.
