Although Froyo may make MiFi-style routers obsolete in coming months, we still love the form factor and rich feature set of these devices. ZTE appears to agree. The company passed this slick little 3G WiFi router called the MF30 through the FCC today.
The MF30 is a quad-band GSM/EDGE device that supports WCDMA bands I, II and V. Support for WCDMA bands II and V is good news for customers in the US, since it means the device will be able to leverage AT&T’s 3G network.
Weighing in at only 2.8 ounces (80g) and measuring 3.9 x 2.1 x 0.6 inches, the MF30 is certainly pocketable. According to ZTE, the device will last for 4 hours when in use, or 100 hours in standby mode.
No word on pricing or availability, but today’s FCC filing is a good indication that we will be seeing the MF30 soon.
