Wireless Extenders as we used to know them, have announced their Wi-Ex Car Extender which captures and amplifies the cellphone signal in your car. This "dual-band" signal booster, which we assume (they don't specify) covers the 800 and 1900MHz frequencies, should be compatible with T-Mobile, Sprint, Cingular and Verizon among others. The Car Extender kit is said to be user-installable and consists of a magnetic mounted external antenna, a bi-directional amp you place in the trunk or under the seat with power supplied by the ol' cigarette lighter, and a small interior patch antenna. Expect the kit to demand about $299 and drop for retail before the end of the month.
