The touchscreen revolution is in full effect, from our cell phones to computers and gaming devices. But what about a wireless router?
Say hello to the Almond by Securifi, the first wireless router with a touchscreen to allow you to do all configuration without the need of a computer to setup. Securifi is calling it the first router for the post-PC era.
A router normally comes with its own software or is configured through a web interface or even both. But for the not so tech savy consumer this will make it much easier for users to setup their network.
“Few people would buy a microwave that can only be set up using a computer, but everyone quietly submits to this chore when setting up their wireless routers,” says Securifi CEO Rammohan Malasani. “We set out to design a full-featured WiFi access point the average person can set up and enjoy in a minute or two. The falling cost of touch screen technology has finally made it possible.”
- The router features a 2.8-inch touch screen display
- Two internal antennas with a range of 100+ meters
- 1 WAN and 2 LAN ports
- 300Mbps MIMO throughput
- Full 802.11b/g/n compatibility
- Industry-standard WPA/WPA2 security
- Powered by a 384Mhz MIPS Architecture processor
The Almond is set for a release sometime within the next few weeks pricing right in the $70 range.
