Now there is an easy solution to use the wireless Internet access that comes with your 2g or 3g mobile phone – and create an ad hoc home, hotel or hotel room WiFi ( 802.b/g) network within minutes to drive up to 5 devices.
Beetel Teletech, a Bharti Enterprises group company, has just launched the Beetel 3G Max wireless hotspot in India. It works at a distance up to 10m and provides internet or network access to any Wi-Fi enabled peripheral device like mobile phones, tablets, laptops etc. It allows users to manage, monitor, and customize their Wi-Fi mobile broadband connection through an easy-to-use interface when the device is in Wi-Fi mode. The device is compatible with Window XP, Window Vista, Window 7, MAC and Linux operating systems.
The palm sized 3G Max claims a battery usage time up to 4 hrs during use and 40 hrs on standby. It costs Rs. 5500. This is about what you would pay for a home-class 802.11 b/g/n broadband wireless router in any case -- so it's reasonably priced.
