Finnish company Uros has launched an LTE version of its wireless hotspot that can be equipped with 10 SIM cards to make roaming abroad easier.

It's slowly becoming more common for operators to let traveling users surf the Web and access email and apps via LTE networks, but the practice is nowhere near ubiquitous. Enter the Goodspeed 4G mobile hotspot, which was launched and demoed this week at the LTE World Summit in Amsterdam.

The device is the world's first commercially available 4G hotspot that can accommodate and switch automatically between 10 SIM cards, making it easier for busy travellers to cross borders, Uros said. Users only need to do two things to use it: switch it on and charge it, according to Tom Lindblad, vice president of global sales and marketing at Uros. Only the SIM cards provided by Uros can be used.

While the Goodspeed hotspot provides access, it's also about keeping costs under control. The company has three price plans. For example, the Pro plan costs €9.90 (US$11) per month and in addition, for actual usage, users pay from €5.90 per day including 1GB of data.

The hotspot has 8 LTE bands, which is enough to provide access in most parts of the world. If there is no LTE coverage, it can fall back on 3G or GSM networks.

The private WLAN connection can be shared with 15 Wi-Fi-enabled devices simultaneously, if that's something users should ever need. The battery allows for 12 hours of continuous use, and lasts seven days in standby mode, according to Uros. The product was developed in collaboration with ZTE, and will go on sale in July. Uros didn't announce what it will cost.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
