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.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
