Finnish company Uros has launched an LTE version of its wireless hotspot that can be equipped with 10 SIM cards to make roaming abroad easier.

It's slowly becoming more common for operators to let traveling users surf the Web and access email and apps via LTE networks, but the practice is nowhere near ubiquitous. Enter the Goodspeed 4G mobile hotspot, which was launched and demoed this week at the LTE World Summit in Amsterdam.

The device is the world's first commercially available 4G hotspot that can accommodate and switch automatically between 10 SIM cards, making it easier for busy travellers to cross borders, Uros said. Users only need to do two things to use it: switch it on and charge it, according to Tom Lindblad, vice president of global sales and marketing at Uros. Only the SIM cards provided by Uros can be used.

While the Goodspeed hotspot provides access, it's also about keeping costs under control. The company has three price plans. For example, the Pro plan costs €9.90 (US$11) per month and in addition, for actual usage, users pay from €5.90 per day including 1GB of data.

The hotspot has 8 LTE bands, which is enough to provide access in most parts of the world. If there is no LTE coverage, it can fall back on 3G or GSM networks.

The private WLAN connection can be shared with 15 Wi-Fi-enabled devices simultaneously, if that's something users should ever need. The battery allows for 12 hours of continuous use, and lasts seven days in standby mode, according to Uros. The product was developed in collaboration with ZTE, and will go on sale in July. Uros didn't announce what it will cost.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
