We know that 3G modems are useful and all, but let’s face it, they tend not to be the most heart-stoppingly gorgeous gadgetry on the block.

The first round of mobile modems for your laptop were bricks that made a further mockery of portable computing added to your mouse, your keyboard, USB drive, Nabaztag…

But the tech force of evolution has been working its mini magic on these accessories and the 3G modem is finally small enough to slip in your pocket.

The iCON225 is one of the smallest 3G modems available and will automatically select the fastest available mobile connection from a range including EDGE, 3G and HSDPA.

Orange is only hawking it to its business customers at the moment but come early 2008 it’ll be available to the masses.  

It’ll cost you nowt when you take it with one of a range of new flat-rate price plans.

So now you can truly take the internet in your pocket. Just remember to take it out before you do the wash.
