Micromax's Wifi router allows users to connect to a maximum of five Wifi enabled devices and it is not locked to any particular service provider, which means you can use a SIM from a GSM operator of your choice.
In a move to offer a simple way to have Wifi networks always and everywhere at the touch of a button, Indian handset player Micromax will launch a 3G pocket wireless (Wifi) router, MMX 400R, this week.
Micromax MMX 400R can be connected to the internet via a SIM card activated with data services. It converts the data signal connection to Wifi, thus creating a Wifi hotspot, and provides a signal with a downloading speed up to 7.2 Mbps within a radius of 5-10 metres.
Using the Micromax Wifi router people can connect to a maximum of five Wifi enabled devices including phones, laptops and personal computers. Besides, this device in not locked to any particular service provider, which means you can use a SIM from a GSM service provider of your choice.
Some time back even Vodafone had launched a similar device that acts as a Wifi hotspot and lets up to five people connect to it for accessing the internet. The device was priced at Rs 5,500 but was bundled with a Vodafone connection. On 2G, through an Edge network, it provides a downloading speed of up to 256 Kbps.
Tata Photon too has a similar device which offers 3.1 Mbps and is priced at Rs 6,500. Also, if you have a phone, such as Motorola Milestone, HTC Desire, LG Optimus and Apple iPhone, which is running on Android 2.2 you can turn your device into a portable Wi-Fi hotspot.
As a result, your phone can be used to provide Internet access to your laptops and gaming consoles, just like a wireless connection you might find in your home or at a cafe.
