MDTV Episode 18: MiFi 2352 mobile broadband hotspot


Download M4V Video | Subscribe to Podcast

You need a MiFi 2352 mobile broadband hotspot device. You just do, especially if you work in mobile development and you find yourself on-the-go regularly. Just pop a sim-card inside the MiFi and hit the button to start your personal hotspot. Up to five of your 802.11b/g devices can piggy-back on the MiFi’s data connection for up to four hours. Genius. Have a watch of the video and you’ll see just how smart it is.

You can pick one up for £209 from Expansys.

I’ll be bringing this to the MIR Mobile Mixer event next week if you’d like to play with it.

    3 Australia have the 3Spot software (aka JoikuSpot) for WiFi Nokia's that does the same thing. Except at a much, much cheaper price. And you can't forget it. Of course, you must be using a WiFi Nokia, and if you go, the hotspot goes too.

    Similar but different. I guess both benefit from being charged by your laptop while in use via USB.

    I want one! Immediately, I can think of hundreds of scenarios where this would come in handy. Great for collaborative working off-site (a.k.a. “let's take this work down the pub”).

    5 questions:

    How long is the battery life?
    Can the mi-fi be password protected?
    How much for the unit?
    Will it work with any 3G SIM?
    Where can I buy one?

    Would love to see this at next Wed's MIR Mixer…

    I used it for 2.5 hours continuously today at the pub. It lasted longer than my MacBook Air battery (fully charged). The packaging says 4 hours total use. I've yet to actually verify that.

    I'll need to check the passwording issue.

    It's £200 from Expansys. I think 3UK are launching either this product or another similar unit so it'll be a few quid a month from them at Christmas.

    I think it'll work with any sim. I just put in the supplied o2 one. I'll try it with the Vodafone one.

    In fact let's try that out tomorrow night. I'll definitely bring it!
