CradlePoint - MBR1000 - Mobile Broadband Router By: Dave Beatty
After learning of this new technology from a friend, I jumped on the chance to buy the high end model of the device while in traveling in Oregon. I opened the box and plugged in my Treo 700p cell phone via a USB cable. After less than a minute, I was online via a WIFI connection from my notebook computer. The connection was so fast that I first thought that I was connected to the home WIFI, so I turned off the home wifi router and tried the connection again. Now I was sure I was using the Mobile Broadband Router and the speed was great.
Bottom line is that this a great technology. It allows multiple computers to connect to a single cell phone with a data plan.
Cost of device is around $250 and can be purchased from
