Kyocera KR1 mobile router now available in Canada


Kyocera Wireless just made it easier for Canadians to share with their friends. The company has released the KR1 Mobile Router in Canada, which will allow users to create a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot for multiple PCs. It is designed to utilize the EV-DO networks available in Canada.

As many as 20 computers can access the network connection via 802.11g or 802.11b Wi-Fi connections, or alternatively, though one of four 10/100 Ethernet ports. That means that a company can quickly and (relatively) inexpensively set up a working network with average speeds of 400-700 kbps and maximum speeds of 2.4 Mbps in a temporary or remote area without having to pay for multiple connections.

The router is fairly portable, measuring 21.5 x 13.5 x 2.3 cm and weighing just 453 grams. You can’t slip it into your pocket, but you won’t destroy your shoulder carrying it around in a briefcase, either. The Kyocera KR1 Mobile Router will be available through both Bell and Telus at prices starting at $249.99.
