Nova Media iCON 461
Maybe you’re a jet setter, or perhaps you just don’t want to be locked into a cellular data contract. Either way, Nova Media’s iCON 461 (€179/$257) 3G USB modem could be a good choice if you want to access the Internet while traveling. What’s so special about it? It’s fully unlocked, meaning you can use any data-enabled SIM card to get online—a good way to go month to month on service, saving a few bucks on the road.
iCON 461 is optimized for pretty much any network, compatible with 850/900/1800/1900 MHz frequencies. It supports HSPA speeds of up to 7.2 Mbit/s down and 5.76 Mbit/s up. In addition to the data, the stick has a few other cool features. There’s a GPS chip built in for location services, and the included software has a dedicated location window so you always know where you are. You can also pop in a MicroSD card (not included) and use the stick as a flash drive—up to 32 gigs.
