Well, I’ve been using the Novatel 2352device for a few months now, and the most important thing that I can say about it is that it remains one of the first things that I look for when going away travelling (whether personal or business); in fact, using it with a PAYG SIM ready for whenever needed has proved very useful over the time I have had the device for review. I’ll write up my full findings soon, but this is a device well worth considering.
Of course, it’s about the function of the device as much as the particular device; so things like the(which is available for a lot less on PAYG) shouldn’t be discounted. In fact, you could even buy the and bundle for less than you can buy the Novatel device SIM-free (of course, SIM free offers other benefits).
As I’ve said before (see here), the web interface management of the Novatel 2352 makes it easier to use than the (although I do have access to information on how to enable the web interface on the , as it was apparently disabled in the -specific firmware), and the need to only press one button for everything to turn on and setup can’t be discounted either, but at roughly 3 times the price, it’s more difficult to justify the purchase of the Novatel 2352.
Of course, theis tied to ; if you were looking for a device on, say, , you would have to plump for the Novatel 2352; or would you? I’m hearing a rumour that next month will be launching a PAYG type device for sale through their website and stores; whether this will be the Novatel 2352 or not isn’t clear ( already sell the Novatel in other countries though), and whether the price will be more inline with the I also don’t know, but it does look like there will soon be competition in the world…
