Netvigator has come out with another neat gadget to line your pant’s pocket with. This Pocket Wi-Fi unit (Wireless Modem E5838) is your own personal wifi zone which allows you to connect up to 5 wifi gadgets online.
For the privilege of keeping one of these sleek little units in your pocket you will need to sign up for a 24 month contract. If you are already a Netvigator Broadband customer the plan is $328/month. Non-Netvigator Broadband customers will have to pay $488/month. This will give you an unlimited usage plan and speeds of up to 7.2M.
I get the impression that these contract periods are getting longer and longer. My current Smartone-Vodafone mobile broadband plan runs for 12 months. If I had taken their USB modem my contract would have been an extra 6 months. I guess they will do their best to lock you in for as long as possible.August 16, 2009 at 9:09 am #1656
Looks good, how does it work? I’m guessing it’s got a SIM inside for 3.5G data and then it shares that via wifi?
Sounds like it’s a pocket wifi router then… exactly as advertised! I’m concerned about the battery life though. How long will it last?
Found some pics here:
1,500 mAh battery, 4 hours batt life?
Micro SD card slot, supports up to 16GB:
PS. I like the CSI music:
