Huawei E585 pocket 3G router shows data use

Britain's 3 today added a portable 3G router with its own rare display features. Huawei's E585 has its own monochrome OLED display that shows both the battery life and connection as well as the amount of data used. A new web-based setup page comes along with the router and can be configured from Linux PCs and Macs, not just Windows systems.

The E585 can continue charging even as it shares its 3G connection over Wi-Fi with up to five other devices. It doubles as storage with a microSDHC slot, but it's unknown if this will act as network-attached storage like the slot on firmware-upgraded Novatel MiFi routers. 3 UK should sell Huawei's router in July for 50 ($74) on a pay-as-you-go basis.

    What about four? When will it be available on four? Oh and five! I'd LOVE to see it put on five, though honestly it would be an absolute DREAM to see it on six!

    Wow, this is really nice!

    I have the Huawei e5830 and I love it, but with no display, it's kind of annoying, as you can't tell battery level or detailed connection status. This is simply the same device with a display, solving the only problems that really exist with the device.
