Netgear MBRN3000 and DGN2200M WiFi-N routers get 3G/4G WWAN backup

Netgear have announced a number of new wireless routers with different combinations of WWAN and DSL support at CES 2010 today.  The range is led by the new Netgear 3G/4G Mobile Broadband Wireless-N Router (MBRN3000) and the Netgear Wireless-N 300 Router with DSL Modem - Mobile Broadband Edition (DGN2200M), both of which - as the names suggest - have WiFi 802.11n support along with a USB port which can be used to hook up a 3G/4G modem.  That modem then offers backup connectivity should your primary broadband connection go down.

Qisda touchscreen router with YouTube & radio crosses FCC

Qisda touchscreen router with YouTube & radio crosses FCC

Bless the FCC for giving us sneak previews of upcoming devices; today's unusual product is why we love it so.  Apparently the work of Qisda, this multimedia router has an egg-like casing and a small color touchscreen, along with stereo speakers - in a sort of Sony Rolly arrangement, though with less dancing - and WiFi 802.11n.  Around the back you only get one 10/100 ethernet port alongside the WAN connection, but there's a USB port that lets you plug in a 3G modem and get online via a cellular network instead.

Bell Mobility MiFi 2372 on sale today

Dear Canada, you've been very patient but your MiFi wait is over.  Having announced back in October that the Novatel Wireless MiFi 2372 "intelligent mobile hotspot" was coming to Bell Mobility in November 2009, the carrier has waited until the very end of the month to put the 3G-sharing battery powered router on sale.  However, on sale it is, and as of today Canadians looking to share a single 3G HSDPA/HSUPA connection between up to five WiFi devices can do so for $99.95 with a new, three year agreement.

NEC Aterm WM3300R for MiFi-style mobile WiMAX sharing

NEC Aterm WM3300R for MiFi-style mobile WiMAX sharing

It packs all the grace of an FM radio, but the NEC Aterm WM3300R distinguishes itself not by aesthetics but by packing a WiMAX radio and WiFi router into a palm-sized device.  Basically a MiFi but for WiMAX rather than 3G connections, the WM3300R offers up to 40Mbps downlinks and up to 10Mbps uplinks, together with a removable 1,880mAh Li-Ion battery.

Novatel MiFi adds Eye-Fi, Cloud backup and VPN apps

Novatel Wireless have announced the first round of applications which will be offered on its MiFi Intelligent Mobile Hotspot, including photo uploads, NAS-style network drive functionality, and VPN support.  The apps - which are produced by developer partners Eye-Fi, Nomadesk and Alcatel-Lucent respectively - will run on the applications processor found in the European MiFi 2352 (which we reviewed back in June) and the MiFi 2372 which will offer AT&T and Rogers Wireless HSPA.

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.
