Firstly I’d like to say sorry for the somewhat poorly taken pictures but I didn’t have much time to take the unboxing pictures.

 Unbagging

In the Currier Shipping bag there was the device its self and a Contract Sim Pack.

Unboxing

I got this Mobile WiFi Modem Router from Three UK, and to say that I got it from a Carrier the box doesn’t have any Carrier branding on it what so ever apart from a Three Security Seal Sticker sealing the box closed.

The reason that there was a second Sim Pack in the Shipping bag I assume is because I’m a Three Customer already and that the second line for the mobile WiFi is on an existing subscriber discount as the Mobile number on the second Sim Pack matches up with the Mobile number for the Sim Pack on the invoice as well as for the Mobile number on a welcome letter that I received from Three this morning.

First impressions

The Mobile WiFi unit is small and can easily slip in your pocket & it even fits nicely into the front pocket of my Targus Chromebook bag.

The speed from the Huawei Mobile WiFi E5330 Modem Router is faster than the speed I get from my iPhone 4S at home, so I think the Mobile WiFi Hotspot will get used more than my iPhone WiFi Hotspot while I’m away from my fixed line Broadband connection, but since I’ve got 1GB of tethering a month on my Phone Account and the 1GB of Mobile Broadband a month on my new Account that gives me a combined 2GB a month of Mobile Broadband to get online while I’m away which is plenty for my Chromebook, Google Nexus 7, Son’s Android Tablet and the wife’s iPhone 4S when were in a 2G only area.

I’ll do a full review in a month or two once I’ve had time to fully test the device.
