Huawei has announced the commercial launch of the world's first plug and link data card, the HiLink E353.
According to the company, the HiLink E353 automatically connects users to the Internet in as little as 15 seconds after the data card is inserted into the USB port, without the need for a tedious dial-in process, driver installation or manual configuration. This is up to 75 per cent faster than products currently on the market, Huawei has asserted.
Wu Shimin, president of mobile broadband, Huawei Device, said, "Leveraging revolutionary 4th generation data card technology, the HiLink series is poised to change the data card industry landscape....we believe that it will not only enhance consumers' user experience, it will also enable operators to reduce backend development and maintenance costs and speed up UI customisation, enhancing the competitiveness of their products."
The HiLink will soon be available in the third quarter of 2011, first in Turkey, then the rest of the world.
