Apple Australia leaks Unwired Airport Express Bundle

Unwired Airport Express

A placeholder in Apple's Australian store shows an unannounced 'Unwired Airport Express Bundle' that carries a price of A$168 (~$109USD), according to AppleInsider. The listing does not provide any additional details, although the title suggests the package could include a modem or service from the Australian wireless-broadband carrier Unwired, which offers data connectivity without requiring a phone or dedicated line.

The wireless Internet service is currently only available in Sydney and Melbourne, but the company is working to expand its network across the country. Base towers currently provide data speeds between 256K to 1Mbps, while monthly subscription prices range between $20 and $100.

Apple early last year ignited speculation that it could be considering a broader range of wireless technologies, such as WiMAX. The company was searching for an RF systems engineer for its Santa Clara offices, a location that is used for investigating or helping build products integrating the latest wireless technologies.

The Unwired Airport Express Bundle placeholder is only present in the Australian Apple Store. The page lists the shipping estimate as two to three weeks.

    How is this News?

    Wireless broadband is available all over the world and offering some sort of bundle unless it means the Airport Express has the modem built in which would be a stupid proposition this is pretty uninteresting.
