Maxis Mobile Broadband WiFi Modem: The Good and The Bad

This is my second post on the Maxis Mobile WiFi Modem (Huawei E5832), after a quick glance on the modem.  Unlike the usual mobile broadband modem that you see or use, this modem is specifically designed to function as a WiFi router that run off mobile phone battery. It can provide mobile broadband connection on the go (up to 4-5hours), without the need to depend on the power provided via USB. General Features The Maxis WiFi modem can provide a top download speed of 7.2Mbps and upload speed of 5.76Mbps over  HSUPA/HSDPA/UMTS 2100/900MHz and EDGE/GPRS/GSM 1900/1800/900/850MHz frequencies.

Apple MacBook Pro 2011 – Malaysian Pricing Starting at RM3699

Apple has refreshed its MacBook Pro line with some expected spec upgrades on the processor speed and storage size. The 13-inch version comes with Intel Core i5 and Core i7 variants while the 15-inch and 17-inch variants comes with Core i7. Interesting enough, Apple has also introduce several new features such as Intel’s Sandy Bridge processor, AMD Radeongraphics (instead of nVidia GeForce), Facetime-enabled HD camera and a high-speed Thunderbolt I/O port (which is touted to be much faster than firewire). The rumour surrounding the inclusion of Thunderbolt I/O (input/ouput) in the new MacBook Pro is proven true after all. Thunderbolt is said to be able to support transfer speeds of up to 10 gigabits per second. Via adapters, it also supports PCI Express, Firewire, USB…

One of the good things about having an Apple iPad is the ability to download various apps that can provide you rich content.

HTC has just launched two new phones, HTC ChaCha and HTC Salsa, specially targeted at Facebook addicts.

Maxis Mobile WiFi Modem: A Quick Glance

When we talk about the mobility of Internet access, not only the speed is important, the ability to share the connection with multiple devices is perhaps equally pivotal. Well, thanks to Maxis WiFi modem (E5832), you can do just that.

Plus, the video also includes my first Maxis Broadband (iPad plan – 3.5GB) speed…

Yes, you’re right, this is my second stint as a Maxis10 Reviewer! Haha. So, as the post title suggests, this time around I have been selected by Maxis to review Apple iPad 3G+WiFi and Maxis WiFi Modem (E5832).
