Netcomm MyZone hands-on


Netcomm was at CTIA showing off its 3G pocket router, and while they admit it apes the MiFi, it builds on it in some pretty useful ways. Battery life purportedly outdoes its rival, with four hours use, even with multiple devices connected -- and when your batteries finally do tank, connecting it to your laptop will let it recharge and still allow wireless connectivity. The MyZone ships in both US and global 3G variants with both also packing quad-band EDGE, and 802.11g WiFi. Another handy feature -- at least for those that travel -- is the MyZone's ability to sort out the APN details for whatever carrier's SIM you happen to put in it, so using it is as simple as popping in your SIM and connecting. We didn't have an opportunity to get connected to it and give it a proper test drive, but we're waiting for one to arrive and as soon as we do we'll let you know how we get on. Few more pics right after the break.
