What's this? The best of both worlds, wrapped neatly into one elegant mobile router
? Sure looks that way, as Netgear
's HBR1210 looks to have support for HSPA+ mobile networks as well as traditional 802.11n WiFi for the home. Based on the FCC filing (which seems down at the moment), there's a foursome of gigabit Ethernet jacks, a SIM card slot, an external antenna port and a chassis that looks to be around 9.8- x 7.9-inches. In other words, we wouldn't expect a Rover
here, but we suppose "mobile" can mean lots of things
to lots of people. We'll keep you posted once an official release date and price falls into our lap.
