Buffalo AirStation 1750

The AirStation 1750 is a decent router with a solid, if uninspiring, feature set and good compatibility with existing wireless devices. However, its impressive 802.11ac performance shows that this is a new technology worth keeping an eye on.

Hallelujah! Nokia N900 Maemo 5 device supports T-Mobile USA 3G

I have the Nokia N800 and N810 Internet Tablets and while they can be fun to use from time to time, but their performance and speed holds them back. Today Nokia announced the rumored N900 running Maemo 5 and with T-Mobile USA 3G support I am putting my Nokia N97 for sale. The N900 is the latest Linux-powered Internet Tablet with GSM/HSDPA and just about every other wireless technology you could want.

Carrier strength drives smartphone selections

Jason Hiner earlier posted on his buying decision between the iPhone 3G S and Palm Pre and as this blockbuster smartphone Summer kicks off I imagine that many prospective buyers will be looking at the available choices. Fellow MoTR podcast co-host James Kendrick actually owns the flagship device from each of the four major US wireless carriers and posted his thoughts on which phone/carrier combo would he choose that I think you should also check out as you look for a new smartphone. I'll offer my opinion as well since I have tried these devices and carriers as well. As you will see the choice for each personal is highly dependent on their carrier signal strength and performance in the location where they live and work.

Expert tips on extending your home Wi-Fi range

Reviewers of wireless routers obsess about throughput, but let’s face it: Few of us are shuffling HD video from PC to TV. The performance issue that matters to most people is range, since many users find that they have a room or two in their house where Wi-Fi just won’t go.

Take internet radio on the go with the Nokia Internet Radio application

One wireless radio that is included on many Nokia S60 devices that I think rarely gets used is the FM radio. I know I rarely use it since it also requires a wired headset to serve as the FM antenna. As a result, I was very pleased to see the beta release of the Nokia Internet Radio application a week or so ago. I immediately downloaded and installed it on my Nokia N95-1 to give it a try and was very impressed with the slick interface, performance even over my T-Mobile EDGE connection, and ability to play the radio over the loud stereo speakers on the device.

2nd impressions of the HTC Touch Dual

I have been using a Windows Mobile Smartphone (the T-Mobile Dash and then Shadow) or a Nokia N95-1 as my main device for the last year and was getting along just fine. A few years ago when I first started using converged devices, I was using Phone Edition devices like the MDA II and i-mate JAM. As a power user, the touch screen devices give you more options in terms of functionality and software, but I haven't found one that I really wanted to carry with me all day long due to the size or performance. I also thought I needed a device with everything, but the kitchen sink thrown in. However, after using the HTC Touch Dual for a couple of weeks (with no WiFi or US 3G support) I discovered that I rarely need to use some of the wireless options and can get 90% done what I want with a simple wireless data connection and solid Bluetooth stack.

Inside Intel's Santa Rosa platform

Improvements to the processor, chipset and wireless components of Intel's latest mobile platform should result in a new generation of faster notebooks with longer battery life. Business systems will also get Intel's Active Management Technology (AMT) for the first time, while Turbo Memory should reduce the frequency of hard disk accesses, saving power and boosting performance.

The big marketing lie on flash drive performance

When it comes to false advertising I used to think the Wireless LAN industry were the worst offenders, but the flash storage industry seems to be vying for this dubious distinction.  With the launch of Windows Vista at the end of this month, flash media performance will become a big issue for ordinary consumers because of Vista's ReadyBoost feature which will boost the performance of Vista.
