Technology company Option has unveiled its smallest high-speed downlink packet access USB device, iCON 225, specifically aimed at mass market business.
High-speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) is a most commonly used 3G network technology. Measuring 63 x 26 x 13 mm and just weighing 40gm, the iCON 225 is Option’s most compact HSDPA USB wireless modem to date. Offering data rates of up to 7.2Mbps, the device can download an MP3 music file in five seconds or a YouTube video in a minute.
Incorporating quad-band EDGE, GPRS and GSM data connectivity as well as 2100 MHz HSDPA/UMTS, the iCON 225 is an easy to use and convenient data roaming solution that allows travelers to access email and the internet virtually anywhere in the world. In addition, Option’s advanced receiver with equalizer ensures the iCON 225 delivers optimum performance. Option’s Zero-CD technology allows applications, manuals and drivers to be downloaded and installed automatically when the device is connected to a computer for the first time: CD installation and bulky printed instruction manuals have been eliminated.
