I just got a newsletter from the hut and thought this was a pretty sweet deal esp with the mobile internet included.
Mobile broadband wherever you are!
The UbiSurfer is revolutionizing the concept of mobile Internet by offering FREE USAGE with Vodafone. Included in the price of the UbiSurfer is 30 hours of usage per month free for the first year, more than enough for the average user. DataWind pays the network operator (Vodafone), so you don't have to. This means:
You pay nothing else, no separate fees to the network operator.
No activation fees & no service charges.
Works right out of the box.
1) You pay nothing else, no separate fees to the network operator.
2) No activation fees & no service charges.
3) Works right out of the box.
UbiSurfer allows you to surf for 30 hrs per month for free for 1 year.
Unlimited usage in excess of 30 hours is only GBP 5.99 per month
but requires no contracts. For each subsequent year, a one-off payment
of GBP 29.99 is required to enjoy a full year of mobile browsing.
On top of this when you purchase this device you will also get FREE 25Gb of online storage for all of your files, these can be accessed anywhere!
A perfect travel companion, the UbiSurfer is a connected netbook that delivers fast, easy and free internet access. Utilising an embedded SIM, the UbiSurfer allows you to surf the web anytime, anywhere, for FREE! You only need to pay for the device, not the usage, since 1,800 minutes of web access for a full year on Vodafones UK wireless network is included in the cost of the device. The UbiSurfer also includes WiFi connectivity for unlimited internet within hot-spot range. In addition to WiFi and LAN connectivity, the embedded cellular modem, empowers the UbiSurfer to get you on the Internet easily, wherever you have mobile phone signal, thus making the Internet truly ubiquitous.
