Option GlobeSurfer X 1

For its time at MWC, Option on Monday released the GlobeSurfer X.1. Intended as a bridge router for those who already have their own 3G modems, the small network device centers on a top-mounted USB port that lets users attach most 3G USB sticks and rely on their signals for an Internet connection, even if the adapter comes from a rival to Option. The X.1's local wireless runs on 802.11n Wi-Fi and theoretically transfers data as quickly as 160Mbps while preserving speeds as high as 70Mbps 300 feet away, letting users get the full 3G speed in most cases.
