Later this year Visor owners will be able to get wireless access from a plethora of solutions, and even more are on the way. Introduced at Global Xchange, Tellus Technologies' WIPClip is the smallest CDPD module announced to date.
"Our primary design goal for the WIPClip was to create a module that would provide for the best experience both in form-factor and in function for Visor users," said Dan Rubin, director of personal mobility products at Tellus Technology. "Thus, we designed a product from scratch optimized specifically for the Springboard expansion slot that would take advantage of its benefits."
The low profile, lightweight design of the WIPClip allows it to fit comfortable into a shirt or jacket pocket, adding very little to the size and weight of the Visor itself.
Tellus expects to begin shipping the WIPClip bundled with a yet unannounced service provider early next year, for an estimated price of under $300.
"Tellus has done an amazing job in the design and implementation of its WIPClip CDPD wireless modem for the Handspring Visor," said Ed Colligan, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Handspring. "As wireless connectivity becomes more and more important for mobile professionals, the plug and play functionality, flexible power management and open-faced design of the Tellus module will appeal to a number of Visor users."
What does the future hold for Tellus technology?
