Vodafone has unveiled a new wireless internet gadget that enables several mobile phone and laptop users to share a single mobile broadband connection simultaneously.
Expected to launch later this year, the Vodafone Mobile Broadband Hotspot allows consumer and business customers to connect mobiles wirelessly either at home or in the office anywhere within the Vodafone Mobile Broadband footprint.
The device is the size of a credit card and does not need to require software to be installed in order to work.
As well as mobile phones, the Hotspot can also be used for laptops, games consoles and netbooks.
Huw Medcraft, mobile broadband director at Vodafone, said: “This product brings even more flexibility to our customers, and ensures that Vodafone’s market leading mobile broadband can be rolled out to even more devices to give customers greater convenience."
The Hotspot will initially launch in France, Germany and Romania.
