QuickerTek today announced that for a limited time buyers of its 27dBm Transceiver ($200) will receive a free carry handle. The offer extends to all 15-inch PowerBook G4 Titanium or Aluminum, 17-inch PowerBook G4, and iBook owners. The transceiver is designed to output the maximum power allowed by the FCC; increasing from 30 milliwatts to 500 milliwatts in the case of the Titanium PowerBook. The device clips onto the top of the computer to prevent damaging the case with adhesives, and is easily removed when no longer in use. The bundled handle (a $50 value, according to QuickerTek) allows for easier carrying as well as tilting the computer for a more comfortable typing angle while placed on a flat surface, and grips the work surface when set up in tilt mode.
