Anyone who has a Globe MiFi, please stand up. Well, kids, starting end of November, you’ll be seeing a pimped-up version of that 3G router, the P5,995 Huawei E5 Pocket MiFi. This one now has a screen that shows your connection, how strong your signal is, and how much juice you have left. You gotta stop groping in the dark at some point, you know.
The nice thing about the Huawei E5 is you can always stick your middle finger to slow Internet connection because this one’s open line. Crappy connection in Makati? Just stick in a SIM card from another telco. If all of them give you a Pong Pagong connection, then that’s the Man Above telling you to get off the Internet. But we digress.
You can turn this one into a network storage device because it’s equipped with a microSD card that can read up to 16GB. The rechargeable battery will last you up to 5 hours of continued use or 100 hours of standby. Pretty decent, we must say. And like the Globe MiFi, you can still connect up to 5 Wi-Fi-capable devices to it. Talk about having your own Wi-Fi hotspot. Hey, why don’t you charge people, even friends, who want to connect to your Huawei E5? No? Just sayin’.
