Posted in Routers,Wi-Fi by Chetz on July 27th, 2007

Phoebus 3G WiFi router shaped like a pyramidTired of having those bland little rectangle-shaped networking components? Would you like to try and add a little style to the clutter of cables and boxes in your office? Top Global thought you might and took a little Egyptian inspiration in making the 3G Phoebus WiFi router.

While this is not ground-breaking technology the package is certainly something different.

You’re not going to get the speed you would find from a WiFi router connected to broadband but if you’re in an area without much in the way of internet connections (but you can get your world phone signal) the 3G Phoebus will serve you well.

For a $289 price tag …
