Winner, Name that Ware April 2009

The Ware for April 2009 was indeed a Cradlepoint PHS300 personal wifi hotspot. It’s one of the first devices I’ve personally taken apart that uses an Ubicom chipset. This particular one was bought in Japan, and it is typically used to convert your USB cellular 3G data modem into a wifi hotspot, so you can share your data connection with your friends. It’s definitely a very handy box to have around!

The winner is Loïc. The post went up at 5:18AM and the answer was guessed by 5:54AM. I only wish I knew how Loïc guessed it so quickly! Congrats, email me to claim your prize.

    Does something like that exist for the iPhone?

    I’ll bet it is precisely the existence of boxes like this that make AT&T very scared about opening up tethering to iPhones. Just imagine trying to use your iPhone to surf the web on the same cell as somebody with one of these who is serving up free internet to anybody who fancies downloading a movie or Windows Service Pack.

    You might buy an unlimited data plan for $30 a month but that doesn’t mean the network have unlimited capacity. In fact current 3G networks have, relative to wireline networks, very limited capacity that is shared between all users on a cell. But of course nobody really thinks of a wireless network as a shared resource, they think their unlimited data plan comes with a QoS guarantee. Guess what, it doesn’t. With minimal amounts of tethering in use today that lack of a QoS guarantee isn’t really a problem but it will be if tethering demand increases.
