Motorola launch WiMAX WiFi base station & USB dongle

Motorola launch WiMAX WiFi base station & USB dongle

Motorola has announced two new WiMAX products, a desktop base-station which shares WiMAX over WiFi and supports VoIP - the Motorola CPEi 725 - and a USB dongle, the USBw 200.  The two products - which will go on sale via WiMAX carriers, rather than directly to consumers - enable both deskbound and mobile workers to take advantage of the next-gen high speed networks slowly spreading across the US.

The CPEi 725 is perhaps the most interesting of the two new products, and has twin WiMAX antennas to support the 2.5GHz band.  As well as WiFi it has an analog voice adapter port for plugging in a handset and using the WiMAX connection for VoIP calls.  As for the WiFi side of the equation, there are MIMO antennas for improved coverage.

Alternatively, the Motorola USBw 200 is a USB dongle intended for a single user.  It will be available in 2.3, 2.5 and 3.5GHz versions, and has a "power boost" system for better connectivity with reduced draw; in fact, it requires just 1.5W, which means the notebook you're using it with should last even longer.

Palm Pre WiFi app creates DIY EVDO router [Video]

Official support for tethering is still one feature conspicuous by its absence from the Palm Pre's abilities, and the last we heard Palm were cautioning tweakers not to unofficially enable it lest Sprint get upset.  If, though, the promise of sharing all that EVDO Rev.A goodness is just too good to miss, and you fancy some MiFi-style WiFi hotspot action, then homebrew app My Tether is the answer.

D-Link DIR-685 Xtreme N Storage Router Review

D-Link DIR-685 Xtreme N Storage Router Review

You'd be forgiven for mistaking the D-Link DIR-685 Xtreme N Storage Router for a cheap digital photo frame, at least from just glancing at it.  Dominated by a 3.2-inch LCD display, and lacking obvious giveaways such as external antennas, it's a stylish way to upgrade to draft-n WiFi.  There's also plenty of interest inside, with an internal hard-drive bay and surprising file-sharing flexibility.  Have D-Link forgotten their connectivity basics, however, in the rush to fill the spec-sheet?  SlashGear set to finding out.
