Asus introduces world’s smallest USB-powered WiFi router
The new WL-330NUL Pocket Router is currently the smallest fully featured wireless router in the world. Asus unveiled the router at this past CES 2013.
Update 15th May 2013 – We've just received word from Asus Singapore that this nifty contraption will be in stores next Monday 20th May 2013 and cost SGD$59.
Asus just recently unveiled what they are calling the 'world’s smallest router', specifically made for helping people get online by Wi-Fi as easy as possible. This new ‘pocket’ router is the smallest, fully featured router that isn’t much larger or heavier (25g) than a typical USB thumb drive.
The new device is being called the WL-330NUL Pocket Router, and this small wonder comes with a single Ethernet port for connecting to a wired network along with a built-in 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi for extending a wireless network for multiple clients as well. Best of all it is powered directly by any USB power source.
Pricing for the new pocket router has not been disclosed by the company yet, however, Asus did say it will be available next month at the usual places. Another issue that is left unanswered is the range of the device, which if based on its size, would be limited to a small area.
