How to convert WiFi only Galaxy Tab to Galaxy Tab 3G

Hardware differences between WiFi Galaxy Tab and Galaxy Tab 3G

Weaker GPU – One obvious difference that affects performance would be the weaker GPU, which basically means that video playback and gaming will be taking a huge hit. The lack of HDMI output also doesn’t help.

Fast CPU – In order to compensate for the WiFi Galaxy Tab’s weaker GPU Samsung has bumped to speed to 1.2 Ghz from 1.0 Ghz so the devices feel pretty fast and snappy when navigating it on the home screen.

Downgraded Bluetooth – Samsung also downgraded the Bluetooth; the 3G version supports Bluetooth 3.0 but the Wifi version only supports Bluetooth 2.1.

How to connect WiFi Galaxy Tab to 3G network

Apart from the obvious difference price and the hardware, the lack of 3G should be the biggest difference between Wifi version and 3G version.

But this is not the hardest problem for the moment as mobile WiFi hotspot becomes more and more popular. The mobile hotspot is actually a mini router which can convert 3G to WiFi signal and share with 5 people at least, and as it is very small, just the size of a cell phone, so you can take it wherever you go. Someone may say that many Smartphone already have the personal hotspot feature. That’s true, but there are two important disadvantage of the cell phone personal hotspot: Speed and users amount. Let’s take iPhone 4 for example, the fastest mobile hotspot by now is up to 21 Mbps download speed, but as far as I know, iPhone 4 can only supports 3 users with up to 2Mbps speed.

So, if you already had a cell phone personal hotspot, is it still worth it to get a mobile WiFi hotspot for Galaxy Tab? Depends on your needs I guess. If you’re getting it to just surf the web and check emails and do the occasional YouTube video then it definitely isn’t worth it but if you want to play online games, watch online HD quality movies or make video call, just get the high speed mobile hotspot. Paying extra $100-200 for it is definitely worth it. Not only Samsung Galaxy Tab, but for other Tablets the mobile hotspot would be a good partner.

ZTE appears from carrier shadows with direct marketing strategy in UK

Even though that Nokia is still influenced by the bad result of its direct sales, ZTE is chasing this selling model hoping of boosting its brand awareness — and it’s going to proceed around England. Following the recently-inked deal, unlocked ZTE handsets will be traded to British buyers through Brightpoint’s online and retail marketing channel. While far from mainstream (despite 60 million pieces traded in 2010), the Chinese manufacturer is looking to get rid of its personal label and “become a household word same to superb quality smartphones and tablets.” Certainly, the business should compete with the familiar foundness for carrier-subsidized handsets, accused by the bigwigs in Espoo due to Nokia’s direct-to-consumer pains. Still, if the Shenzen-based business finds any luck, Londoners will shortly find out points of Amigos, ZTE Blades and ZTE Skates appearing on the Tube. Do you still eager for more details? Just click the links to look for the specifications.

Huawei Ascend II on the market now, brings off-contract Gingerbread to Cricket for $180

We gotta say — we keep closely contact with the market. Between Virgin Mobile’s Intercept, Promote Mobile’s Prevail and Cricket’s Ascend II, it’s getting harder and harder to support a mid-range smartphone on a post-paid carrier. Huawei’s newest prepaid smartphone has just set down on Cricket, rather several months after we first affected it at CTIA. What’s untamed isn’t the predictable layout or middle-of-the-road 5 megapixel camera — it’s that $179.99 off-contract cost tag connected with a duplicate of Android 2.3. Gingerbread is verifying strong to find even on the big shot, so having a prepaid choice is all the more surprising. You’ll furthermore get a 3.5-inch HVGA touchpanel, WiFi, a microSD slot and a 600MHz processor. Granted, you’ll probablely know logs of lag when seeking to multitask, but with an all-embracing $55/month design (which contains unlimited conversation, text, 411 data, worldwide text, facts and numbers and video image messages), what’s to complaint?

Huawei Smartphones are supplied with high quality and affordable prices.

New 3G Wi-Fi modem connects laptops, iPads to the net while travelling

ZTE MF60 3G Wi-Fi Modem is a faster portable Wi-Fi hotspot to enable travellers to access the net on laptops, smartphones and tablets via the Next G mobile network.

ZTE MF60 mobile hotspot has an inbuilt battery that lasts up to four hours, and allows 8 devices to share a Wi-Fi hotspot that accesses the internet connection via a Next G SIM card.

There are numerous devices like this around from the various telcos, including the well-known Mi-Fi device in the US and sold popularly in local by Internode, but the new ZTE MF60 mobile hotspot from the Next G network will lead the coverage and speed of the market.

This device can connect to the network up to a theoretical 21Mbit/s — it may equate to a real life speed of anywhere from 0.5Mbit/s – 8Mbit/s.

In Australian Business Traveller’s experience using Next G modems, the fastest speed generally seen is around us, mainly because of the modern needs.

The device (ZTE MF60) has a display that gives clear information like signal strength, number of devices connected and battery level, which is an improvement over many similar devices available that just have cryptic status lights.

The modem costs $221.00 at www.modem3g.com and has no contracts associated — you just use the included pre-paid SIM card, it will prevail over other competitors.

The prepaid version of the modem is locked to the network, which means it’s not possible to put another SIM card from a foreign carrier in it if you travel overseas. We’ve enquired with the costs of unlocking the modem, and we’ll update the story once we’ve got the answer.

If you have an iPhone 4, or a recent Google Android-based phone, you may already have a similar portable Wi-Fi hotspot function built into your phone.
