ZTE launches faster data card

The MF662 data card from ZTE supports download and upload rates of up to 21.6Mbps and 5.76Mbps, the company announced on Monday

ZTE's latest MF662 data card supports download and upload rates of up to 21.6Mbps (megabits per second) and 5.76Mbps respectively, the company announced on Monday.

The card is based on HSPA+ (High-Speed Packet Access), also known as Evolved HSPA or HSPA Evolved.

Besides higher speeds, the technology will also allow lower latency — improving, for example, online gaming performance.

The increased speed will also improve performance on services including mobile TV, downloading music, TV and film clips, and large-volume mail services, ZTE said in a statement.

The card measures 69x27x12mm. Pricing and availability for the card wasn't announced.

Operators including 3 Scandinavia, Telstra in Australia and StarHub in Singapore have all announced plans to launch services.

Vodafone has also expressed interest in the technology and has trialed the HSPA+ on its network in southern Spain and Madrid city center, it said on Monday, but announced no specific launch plans.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
