Vodafone UK has announced a deal with Huawei which sees its smallest HSUPA USB stick launched, giving customers high-speed mobile Internet access on their mobile PC, handheld device, or desktop PC.
The creatively named E172 gives a download rate of up to 7.2Mbps, which is certainly no slouch, and an upload rate of up to 2Mbps. Yes, I know — “up to” — but we live in hope.
Fully compatible with Windows Vista and XP, and Mac OS X, the device was apparently designed with the elegance of a sleek white piano in mind. Well, it takes all sorts.
