While most geeks just use the portable hotspot element of their phone to share an internet connection, sometimes a dedicated device is the better option. Telstra has just announced its new player, an HSPA+ device capable of delivering up to 20Mbps theoretical download speeds to up to five devices.
Uniquely, the device features a 3.5 x 3cm LED display showing battery life, security, devices connected and signal strength. Telstra reckons the device offers up to 3.5 hours of continual use, and 100 hours standby.
The device is available for $0 up front on a $49 plan over 24 months, including 7GB of data, from today.
