Franklin Wireless Unveils R526 Mobile Hotspot At CTIA

At CTIA Wireless 2010 in Las Vegas, Franklin Wireless unveiled their R526 mobile hotspot. Similar to the ultra popular Novatel MiFi 2200, the Franklin R526 also features an ethernet port for connecting devices that don't have WiFi connectivity. While its not as small as the MiFi at 2.46 ounces , the Franklin’s R526 is still a very portable device. It will support Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux without any special connection manager software, since you will be able to connect via WiFi or ethernet cable. Franklin indicates that it will be available in the US in April 2010, but we aren't 100% sure which carriers will be carrying this device. However; in the past Sprint has carried many Franklin devices such as the CDU680, U300, and U301. So it's likely that Sprint may be one of the carriers to offer the R526.
