We’re running on translated information with scant details but our understanding is that the Chinese Huawei E5 allows you to convert your 3G GSM signal into a WiFi signal. It’s also allegedly the world’s first to do this. This means you could turn it into a mobile hotspot and allow the connection of any nearby wireless devices. So instead of tethering your one laptop to your cell to access the Internet, you use this to create a hotspot and connect via WiFi using any device you like.
Detailed specs include:
HSUPA/HSDPA/UMTS 2100 MHz
EDGE/GPRS/GSM 1900/1800/900/850 MHz
MicroSD card: up to 32G
Sadly no details on pricing or availability, but these Chinese products have a knack of making their way here sooner or later.
