One of the most popular mobile accessories that I have heard about from others who travel quite a bit is the Novatel Wireless MiFi. I personally have not tried one out because they have been available on Sprint and Verizon Wireless and I don't get a good enough signal where I live with these carriers to pay for another mobile data service.

This is all the more annoying as the TG01 costs nearly £500 (inc. VAT) SIM-free. On contract, it's exclusive to <a href="http://shop.orange.co.uk/mobile-phones/Toshiba-TG01?WT.mc_id=ConMarGoMob_1059&WT.srch=1&cd_source=Automedon">Orange</a>. </p>
