Netgear’s HSPA+ mobile wireless-N router hits the FCC
T-mobile’s HSPA+ will be available to over 200 million people by the end of the year, and HSPA+ devices have slowly started to emerge. In an FCC filing today, Netgear unveiled their HSPA+ plans with the MBR1210 mobile wireless-N router, label above.
The HBR1210 features 4 Ethernet ports, a SIM card slot and what appears to be an external antenna. Although Netgear describes the HBR1210 as a “mobile” router, the device has a power port, which unfortunately could mean that the device needs to be plugged in. Hopefully, we’re wrong and the HBR1210 has a huge internal battery that provides hours of wireless web browsing.
We’re not sure about the exact measurements of the HBR1210, but label location pics of the device, below, show a squarish form factor that judging by the size of the device’s label size will be around 25 cm (9.8”) wide and less than 20 cm (7.9”) tall. Unfortunately, those measurements mean the device won’t be close to pocketable.
No word on pricing or availability, but we’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
