O2 launches bovine mobile broadband stick

dongle_white

In what may very well be the oddest looking mobile broadband stick we’ve ever seen, O2 has announced a designer USB dongle with the colourings of a cow. Whilst at the same time milking designer labels, for all they’re worth.

This is apparently this seasons must have accessory; a Henry Holland designed under his House of Holland label polka dotted dongle. Although to us, it does look distinctly Friesian or Jersey in nature rather than anything else.

It was only an amount of time before mobile broadband USB dongles gained designer status. Mobiles have been painted with that very same brush for some time now, with the likes of Prada, Armani, Dolce and Gabbana all getting in on the act.

What’s next to gain the fashionable tag in phone apparel?

Are we likely to see Dior microSD cards or Chanel SIM cards?

When will this madness stop!

*sigh*

This USB mobile broadest of the band sticks with a designer skin will be on pay as you go, with a marginal price tag of £29.35. It’s accompanied by deals ranging from the likes of £2 a day for 500MB, £7.50 each week for 1GB or £15 a month for 3GB depending on their needs, all with unlimited access to Wi-Fi.

Expect to see this in a field near you soon at the end of February for a time limited period, or when the cows come home.

  1. Can you buy the SIM w/o the dongle? Ie for people visiting the UK for a few days who already have an [unlocked] dongle or bluetooth enabled phone?
