There are some days at the FCC where devices seem to flood into its assembly line, ready and waiting to be inspected by its tireless officials, but on certain days, boring stuff do come in as well. Take for instance the D-Link DWR-530 portable wireless hotspot – now, if you’re an average tech guy, this piece of news should not bother you too much, but if you’re a sucker for all things FCC, then you will be pleased to know that this is known as a 3.75G router – now is there ever such a term? Why 3.75G in the first place?
Well, it comes with 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity coupled with GSM 850, 1900 and WCDMA band II and V wireless data support. These bands, as those who are familiar, will know that they correspond to AT&T’s service in the US, which means the DWR-530 will most probably be made available via AT&T and relies on AT&T’s HSPA+ network.
There is no word on pricing or availability as at press time, but since it has already debuted over at the FCC, it makes perfect sense for this maiden AT&T HSPA+ portable hotspot to be released real soon. How much are you willing to pay for something like this, or do you think that sticking to your smartphone tethering is good enough for portable data?
