While getting away from it all is important, sometimes you need to stay in touch with friends, family and colleagues. Yes, you can use your smartphone to check e-mails or the occasional attachment. But if you need to access files, send or receive attachments, or wrap up some business before you play, mobile Internet connectivity on your laptop may give you the peace of mind to truly relax.
For example, the Rocket mobile Internet stick acts as a modem and memory stick in one, providing HSPA+ connectivity with download speeds of up to 21 Mbps and expandable memory storage up to 32 GB. All you need to do to keep connected is take the tiny stick out of your pocket, plug it into your laptop USB port and in a few clicks, you’re surfing.
If you prefer Internet access for the whole family or team, the Rocket mobile hotspot connects up to 5 Wi-Fi devices at once ― laptops, music players, gaming devices, and more. Barely larger than a deck of cards, it’s easy to use on the go and runs up to 4 hours on a single charge. No software download needed – just power on to create your own personal hotspot.
