The At Home Talk and Web Box has been unveiled by Vodafone Germany, offering Internet surfing and low-cost phone calls, cable free printing and an answerphone function for teleworkers, freelancers, small enterprises and private individuals.
Vodafone's At Home Talk and Web Box is a plug-and-play solution that enables phone calls to be made while surfing the Internet, with communication via the mobile network, providing an alternative to the fixed network.
According to Vodafone, existing fixed network devices such as PCs, laptops, analogue telephones, printers and answerphones, can be connected to the At Home Talk and Web Box. The box can be located in the most convenient position for the customer and it does not require installation or registration of a conventional fixed network connection.
Wireless solutions company Newolution Ltd has set the launch date for its Web Box wireless modem.
The Web Box contains a GPRS module, USB module and room for a SIM card to enable it to use the same network as a mobile phone.
Business Wire's Personal Web Box (http://www.businesswire.com/) is a Web function that allows a reporter to define a customized interest "profile" by selecting from an alphabetical list of 31 general industry descriptions or "keywords" from "Aerospac & Defense" to "Utilities."
Once the profile is established, the central system automatically delivers copies of all relevant press releases to the reporter's Personal Web Box each day.
The incoming news release files remain archived in the user's Personal Web Box for 30 days.
