We just made some awesome new demo videos for the Rover Puck, Hub & Stick so that you guys can get a better idea of what you get with each of them. There are three videos for each device: a First Look, an Activation demo, and an example of how you can use the device. You can see them all on our YouTube channel, but we’ll show you the three Rover Puck videos here to give you an idea of what they’re all like.
1. Rover Puck First Look
2. Rover Puck Activation
3. Rover Puck Demo
You’ve of course heard the big news that Verizon will finally be carrying the iPhone and that within the next couple months the phone will also function as a hotspot. The idea of turning your phone into a hotspot is old news for all of you that already have hotspot-capable phones, but so is the realization that a smartphone doesn’t make that great of a wireless hotspot!
Before you shell out that extra $20 a month to your provider for iPhone tethering check out this article in BNET about the Smarter, Cheaper Alternative to iPhone Tethering: getting an actual mobile hotspot device. It goes into the various reasons (price, share-ability, battery life and more) why reconsidering that tethering charge is better for your wallet & your smartphone.
Keepin’ busy online? We’re pretty heavy data users too but it’s no big deal with the Rover Puck. All Rover devices offer unlimited 4G so you can stream music, video, games & more to your heart’s content. Even if that means watching The Sandlot, the History of Dance video and streaming Pandora radio all at once.
How do you multitask?
A couple really awesome unboxing videos of the Puck came out this week so we thought we’d share ’em here.
