Today Sprint announced a pair of new wireless routers. The Sprint Personal Hotspot PHS300S and the Cradlepoint MBR-1000 Broadband Router both can connect to WiMax and EVDO Rev. A 3G networks (whichever is available). USB dongles must be purchased and provisioned with 3G/4G wireless services separately and then plugged into the routers. The routers then rebroadcast Wi-Fi, allowing properly equipped devices, such as mobile phones and laptops, to connect to the router (and the Internet) via Wi-Fi. The PHS300S costs $160 and is meant for consumers. It supports up to four Wi-Fi connections at a time and is available in retail stores, online and via telesales for Sprint's WiMax markets. The MBR-1000 costs $250 and is meant for businesses. It supports up to 32 simultaneous connections and is only available via business sales channels.

Forget the price, imagine using one connection with 32 users! epik Aug 5, 2009, 9:39 AM
