Share your 3G connection

Seven Steps to Software Security

It's got a Micro SDHC slot and the ability to share an HSDPA 3G connection with up to five devices over 802.11b/g Wi-Fi - yes, it's Vodafone's Wi-Fi R201 mobile hotspot.

The R201 is the carrier's answer to the likes of Three's MiFi - aka the Huawei E5, reviewed here - though it's not the first time Vodafone has offered kit like this. The Vodafone MiFi 2352 was its most recent such offering.

The new one will be offered free of charge on a year-and-a-half, £25-a-month contract which includes a 5GB data allowance.
