[CES 2013] A router is a router, right? TP-LINK does not think so, which is why they have taken the opportunity to announce the Wireless N Mini Pocket Router, also known by its model number as the TL-WR810N. The Wireless N Mini Pocket Router will be one of the latest in a line of innovative portable wireless networking devices which intends to deliver robust wireless networking even when you are not seated comfortably behind your desk at home or at the office. We are talking about a theoretical 300Mbps wireless networking capability, although in real life, you would be unable to achieve such speeds as there are plenty of other factors to take into consideration.
It is nice to know that with the Wireless N Mini Pocket Router, there is no need to tote around an external power adapter whenever you travel, and it relies on default pre-encrypted security parameters in AP mode as an added measure of security. All you need to do is plug the device into a power socket, insert a home, office or hotel’s Ethernet cable into one of the device’s two 100Mbps ports, and you’re good to go. Heck, the Wireless N Mini Pocket Router also doubles up as a charger thanks to its USB port which lets you plug in other compatible devices to replenish their worn out batteries.
No idea on pricing, but it should hit the market sometime in the second quarter of the year. [Press Release]
