Huawei E180 world’s slimmest HSPA USB stick with built-in MicroSD card slot
Huawei today launched the E180 next generation mobile broadband device. As the world’s slimmest HSPA USB stick to date, the only 10mm thick E180 is a highly compact device supporting the complete range of HSPA/UMTS and GSM/GPRS/EDGE network technologies, allowing fast uplink speed rates of up to 5.76Mbps and a downlink of up to 7.2 Mbps. Equipped with a rotatable USB connector and compatible with Microsoft Windows (2000/Vista/XP) and Mac OSX, the Huawei E180 is a real plug-and-play device for mobile broadband users. The E180 is designed with a ultra slim rotatable USB connector, which can be turned by 270 degrees. This way, the USB connector can be stored safely without the need of an additional cover.
An interesting feature of E180 is the ability to use it as a flash memory. Its built-in MicroSD card slot supports up to 8GB memory card, turning the E180 into a portable storage device for documents, music or movies, eliminating the need for an additional USB memory stick. In addition, the device supports various useful services like SMS/MMS, PC voice, phone book, flow display and statistics. Boasting High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) and an innovative swiveling Huawei E180 USB connector will be available globally in June 2008.
