The IPWireless is basically a 3G wireless modem that can be connected to your laptop or Tablet PC when broadband connection is not otherwise available. The dimunitive size of the modem (3″ x 4″) means you can easily travel with the device. The IPWireless has an internal rechargeable battery which is nice and can be plugged into the wall when an outlet is available.The unique design of the IPWireless is the SIM card slot. You just pop your existing SIM card into the modem and use the same account as your phone which precludes needing another account.
