Today i purchased an Huawei E583c Mobile "hotspot"

This device allows use of a 3g simcard with internet access to be "bridged" to a wifi AP providing you with an "infrastructure" mode portable wireless network the one i bought is through optus and i am happy with the performance with a download speed at my house of 408kbps

so far i have tested the device with

-windows7
-windowsxp
-symbian "nokia n97"
-an eeepc701 "running knoppix"

and most importantly my hp touchpad

the fantastic thing about this device is i can use it with any optus sim since i already had a phone /data account with optus and my wife has one too we can now share both our data plans with any of our portable devices .
