O2 launches Pocket Hotspot mobile Wi-Fi device
O2 has become the latest network operator to enter the mobile Wi-Fi market with the introduction of the O2 Pocket Hotspot.

Launched on Thursday (August 2nd 2012), the device allows customers to connect up to five mobile gadgets - such as smartphones and tablets - to the internet at the same time.

It will be available in two pay-as-you-go options - daily top-up or 1 and 2GB bundles that last for 30 days.

O2 said the Pocket Hotspot offers some of the most competitive mobile broadband access on the market without forcing customers to sign in to a minimum-term contract.

The device, which delivers 802.11b/g Wi-Fi connectivity, will go head to head with similar products from rival carriers 3 Mobile and T-Mobile.

Gary Booker, general manager for consumer at O2, said: "There are growing numbers of consumers wanting to be able to use the devices they get internet access on at home while they're on the move."
