TRENDnet announces tiny wireless USB adapter
November 12, 2010
U.S. networking solutions company TRENDnet has launched one of the world’s smallest wireless N USB adapters. The new 150Mbps Micro Wireless N USB (model TEW-648UBM) is uber small, measuring in at 0.59 x 0.74 x 0.28 inches (1.5 x 1.9 x 0.7 cm). I know what you are thinking – how can I possibly not lose a USB adapter so small? Well, when it's plugged into the side of a computer, it only extends out by 0.3 inches (0.8 cm) so you can easily just leave it in there. For laptop users, you can travel with the USB attached to your computer, without the concern of damaging the device.
“The TEW-648UBM eliminates size constraints when using wireless adapters. On-the-go users no longer have to worry about leaving their adapter plugged into their laptop,” stated Sonny Su, Technology Director for TRENDnet.
The USB also comes with a WiFi protected setup (WPS) button, allowing for easy access to a wireless network. By pressing the WPS button on a compatible router, pressing the WPS button on the USB, then confirming your choice, you are connected.
TRENDnet's 150Mbps Micro Wireless N USB adapter, model TEW-648UBM is priced at US$39.99.
