Wired - The Mifi is a tiny, battery powered EVDO modem which sits in your pocket and turns the incoming 3G radio waves into a small Wi-Fi network, enabling you to hook up your laptop, iPod Touch or anything else with a Wi-Fi radio. This last is pretty exciting on its own as it effectively turns an iPod Touch into an iPhone without a phone.
The difference with the Mifi is that it is so tiny and, according to the New York Times. David Pogue, ridiculously easy to use. It will run for 40 hours in standby, much like a cellphone, and when you hit the single switch on the side it springs (or rather, stirs) into life, firing up a little 30 foot bubble of Wi-Fi around you. Once on, the battery will give five hours of surfing but can be plugged into the power as it goes to re-juice the batteries.
Of course, its a cellular modem, so you have some rather low data caps. The $40-a-month plan limits you to just 250MB (yes, megabytes) and jumping to $60 gives the industry-standard 5GB. You can share the connection with up to five devices

This is a great device! I've purchased both the CTR350 and this device to create mobile hotspots using my Sprint U595 devices. It was dead simple to set up (literally charged it up, plugged my device into it and it worked)
Review of the PHS300,
By Monstermatch LTD (London UK) -
This is an excellent product and can be used anywhere in any country. I only had to buy a US to UK plug to fit the charger which is a minor detail. As soon as you plug in a USB Modem soon after you have three green lights and your own WiFi Hot Spot. Trust the Americans to invent this. It will put commercial hot spots out of business if it catches on widely. I recommend the Cradlepoint PHS300 to anyone in need of their own personal WiFi Hot Spot.

I bought this item a week ago and I totally love it. A battery (li-ion) powered portable WiFi unit, whodathunkit?
Setup was a breeze, I just plugged in my AT&T 881U and after a minute we were online. I logged in and ran the wizard, then the firmware update and we were all set.
As with all routers, if you use WEP, your range will drop. Use MAC filtering or the "web page" login options for security.
I have multiple iPhones and laptops hooked up to it and it handles them like a champ. I'm going to try to use VOIP through it VIA my iPhone next.
Highly recommended. Oh, the the Cradlepoint website has a lot of helpful information too.
