In a bid to capitalise on the mania for the beautiful game, the Chinese tech giant has created a football shaped dongle. To be honest, we’re quite taken with it.
Launched at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) yesterday, apparently Huawei’s device offers microSD card support, so it doubles as a memory stick and opens up to reveal a compact dongle inside. And it supports Windows 7, Linux and Mac too. So it’s perhaps more practical than you might imagine.
Unfortunately, despite the fact that it’s compatible with UK network we can’t see of our venerable mobile broadband providers picking this one up. But we can definitely see it finding a market at the Nou Camp club shop, where no merchandising opportunity goes unexplored. And where rabid fans can snap up everything from paintings of Lionel Messi as some kind of flying messiah to Johann Cruyff shaped bottles of plonk.
