Nexaria's NexConnect SOHO router does 3G and 4G on the trot, BYO modem (video)
Little wireless routers with built-in modems, like the MiFi, are great for getting easy access to 3G (or, soon, 4G) wireless on the go and for sharing it with a few friends. But, they're not exactly meant for sharing with the whole office. Nexaria's NexConnect 3G/4G SOHO router is (for small-to-medium offices, anyway) and it brings some impressive compatibility to the table, able to connect to 3G networks from AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, plus others, and even 4G WiMAX from Clear. How does it manage all this? Simple: you bring the modem. There's a PCMCIA slot on the top and a USB port on the back, either of which can be used to get this thing connected -- even Ethernet if you have a little Cat-6 lying around -- and setup is handled through a simple GUI shown after the break. The router is due to start shipping in May with a cost of $99.95.
