The MBRN3300 might not exactly roll off the tongue, but it fits inside a product category that you’ll see become more and more prevalent as countries start realizing that burying copper or fiber optic is simply too expensive, and that deploying a wireless network is a much better idea from both a cost perspective, and from a KSP (key selling point) angle since you can offer your customers internet on the go. Now if you’re living in America you’re probably never going to see one of these, but for people in Europe and Asia, the idea of plugging in a box, powering it on, and getting internet access out of the air is glorious. No USB dongles, no software, just connect to a WiFi access point and enjoy a wireless network.
There will be 3 models available, the MBRN3300C that does 3.1 Mbps EVDO Rev A, the MBRN3300E that does 7.2 Mbps HSPA, and the MBRN3300H that does 21 Mbps HSPA+, all powered by Ericsson wireless technology so you know it’s robust and the best the industry has to offer. Each model spits out 802.11n and also has 4 ethernet ports.
No word on price, but Netgear say it’s available now, and I believe them since the MBRN3300 product sheet [PDF file] is dated November 25 2009.
