Top Global Phoebus MB6000 Cellular Broadband Wi-Fi Router
Looking to squeeze as much value out of your 3G wireless connection as possible? Then direct your attention to Top Global’s newest variation on their 3G router lineup - the Phoebus MB6000. The MB6000 is housed in a unique pyramid-shaped housing that is an interesting departure from the norm of squat, rectangular boxes, but may not appeal to everyone’s sense of aesthetics. While your mileage may vary on the design, it’s hard to argue with the ability to take a CDMA 1x, EV-DO, EDGE, or UMTS PCMCIA card and share it with other users over an 802.11b/g wireless connection. The MB6000 can also be upgraded to handle EV-DO Release A and HSDPA should the need arise. If you do decide to take advantage of the Phoebus MB6000 or similar ilk, make sure your data plan is of the unlimited variety or you might be in for a nasty surprise when the bill arrives.
A quick check reveals street pricing to be right around $400 USD with wide availability.
