The more broadband players are entering into the market, the companies are offering price packages and service. Along with this they are also introducing different products in the market where in the latest one is the Tata Photon Wi-Fi Router which is the normal Tata Photon data card plus a inbuilt Wi-Fi router feature which allows you to connect to up to 5 users/devices at the same time and share your 3.1 mbps connection with everyone.
- Portable and Handy Wi-Fi Router – Slim and compact design makes it easy to carry in your pocket
- Supports one RJ45 Ethernet Port
- Simple activation and installation – User-friendly web-based interface
- Easy to use – Switch on and start surfing
- Secured Access – The connection is password protected
- Portable Powered Battery – Comes with a portable and rechargeable Li-ion Battery
- Independent of Operating Systems – Thus eliminates the OS related issues
This is something which is useful for geeks who use a Laptop along with a Wifi featured smart phone or may an Apple iPad. Hence you don’t have to buy separate connections for each of these devices and the best part is that you can use it while travelling and also share the same Internet connection with your friends.
The device comes with an inbuilt battery which could power up to 2.5 hours and would be connected to your computer through the USB slot. The device is offered at Rs 4,999 as an introductory offer while the standard cost would be Rs 6,500.
The only problem is that even after paying 5 grand you are limited to a single network and cannot use other companies SIM card. It would have been better if Tata would have just sold the devices unlocked which the customers can use with any connection like the Unlocked 3G Modems which are available in the market like Huawei USB Modem.
