Posted on Mar 24 2008 - 7:52am by Russ


Imagine going to Starbucks your favorite coffee shop and setting up your own firewalled WiFi Hotspot. Cradlepoint Technology has come out with the PHS300 which allows you to do just that. Attach this puppy to your (supported) cell phone and you are up and running, runs on it’s own Lithium Ion battery and will even charge your cell phone. And get this… only $157.

    For anyone interested in the PHS300, its not just for EVDO anymore.. it also works with AT&T HSDPA devices like the 875U and 881U, as well as phones like the RAZR v3xx, Q v9h and Samsung Blackjack.
