Have you seen a la Ranjikant ZooZoo on TV yesterday? That’s the mascot for Vodafone’s 3G service in India. Vodafone is all set to introduce 3G services in the country.
In preparation to that it has announced a new 3G dongle (device) that acts as a WiFi hotspot and lets five people connect to it for accessing internet.
The device is priced at Rs 5500 the device is cheaper than what Tata Photon offers. The product is quite useful. We hope that Vodafone launches an unlimited plan for this device that will really sweeten the deal for students and small professional teams.
Tata Phonton which offers a respectable 3.1 mbps speed has a similar WiFi dongle which is priced at Rs 6500, almost Rs 1000 costlier than Vodafone offer, and doesn’t even offer unlimited plans which they offer for other data cards and dongles.
Vodafone also has been selling 3G dongles for Rs 1500, but right now in absence of 3G services it is offer services through edge network with max speed of 256 kbps.
There are certain phones which come with MiFi capability, including Huawei Ideos, Motorola Milestone, and Apple iPhone.
