Networking and comms vendor Microcomputer Research (MRi) has signed Carphone Warehouse as a distributor for its PC Card modem range, Mr Modem. Mr Modem will now be putting in an appearance in all Carphone Warehouse's 200 stores. Until now, according to MRi, Carphone Warhouse has only stocked modems in two stores. There are two modems in the Mr Modem range. The PC card is Mr Modem PCMCIA 56K, priced at £89, and a 1456USB variant for the desktop, Mr Modem USB, which doesn't need an external power supply and is priced at £59. Carphone Warehouse will sell the PC Card modem. In September, MRi signed Tandy as a reseller of its Mr Network DIY networking kit. MRi is fast becoming one of The Register's favourite companies as it calls all its products Mr, which we take to be a sign of good manners. Both Mr Modems offer download speeds of up to 56kbps, upload data transfer rates of 33.6kbps and fax speeds of 14.4kbps. ®
