Internode launches battery-powered 3G Wi-Fi modem

MiFi device the size of a pack of cards

Australian ISP Internode has launched a battery-operated, portable 3G Wi-Fi modem called MiFi.

Powered by a rechargeable and removable lithium-ion battery, the Internode MiFi will support up to five Wi-Fi devices including notebooks, desktop PCs, smartphones and the latest generation gaming consoles.

The MiFi device, designed by Novatel Wireless, requires a 3G data SIM to provide a wireless Internet connection. "It’s a 3G router and an 802.11 b/g WiFi access point that can fit in your shirt pocket," said Internode product manager Jim Kellett.

Sold exclusively through Internode in Australia, the MiFi is $349 outright or $299 when bundled with a 24-month Internode data service. The MiFi is unlocked when purchased outright, so it will work with Optus, Vodafone, 3 and Virgin Mobile SIM cards that are data-enabled. The device won't work on Telstra's 850MHz Next G network.

The MiFi also has GPS, but this feature is not currently enabled in the firmware released in Australia.

The Internode MiFi comes with a power supply and a USB cable and has a built-in microSD slot capable of taking cards of up to 16GB in size.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
