Telstra unveils Next G mobile broadband WiFi router

Doing business on the move

Telstra, in conjunction with Netcomm and Sierra Wireless, has released a portable HSDPA, Wi-Fi and Ethernet router that can be used to share an Internet connection wherever there is Next G mobile network coverage.

The new Telstra Turbo 7 Series Wireless Gateway arrives with the launch of a new secure, high-speed service that lets multiple users share a single mobile broadband service.

The device, manufactured by Netcomm with components from Sierra Wireless, will enable businesses to take the network with them on customer visits, to trade and community events, or to temporary work locations like construction sites, according to Telstra.

Telstra is also touting the device as a benefit to families without fixed-line Internet access allowing them to network their homes and share access client devices.

The Telstra Turbo 7 Series Wireless Gateway combines four wired Ethernet ports, Wi-Fi Next G HSDPA and 2.5G connectivity options. It does wireless encryption (WPA) and offers upload speeds of 2Mbps. The product comes with a Next G SIM card.

The wireless gateway is available through existing Telstra retail shops and partners stores such as Dick Smith Electronics.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
