Bluetooth to Wifi Retransmitter?

Yes, there is such a beast! Well almost!

If you have read my earlier posts you will know that I was looking for a bluetooth to wi-fi retransmitter. Well there doesn’t seem to be such a thing as that but there is a USB/mobile/EVDO thingy that does a similar thing. Cradlepoint technology makes it for about US$180, though the street price seems to be about $40-50 lower.

This seems to be a great solution to using your iPod Touch while on the road!

I have just had a thought. Those USB dongles that you can now get from the phone companies. If you could get those without the USB and with Wifi. Now that I’d buy!

The closest I can see to it is Virgin’s broadband modem, but that is plugged in, and has VOIP and all sorts of other things built in.

YOu might be saying at this point, what about the battery size. But I’m sure if there are Wifi phones now, this can be done, and to be honest I don’t think you’d need that much charge. Maybe an hour or two at most until you get to a desk.

Bluetooth to Wifi Retransmitter?

I have a problem. As a proud owner of an iPod Touch I would really like to be able to use the email and web browsing when I’m out and about. I have a phone, and an account that lets me connect to the net. I can even connect my laptop to it via bluetooth, but why isn’t these a simple device that will take the bluetooth signal, convert it to Wifi, so that my iPod can connect to it? It must be possible, as my laptop will do it, but I don’t really want to have to lug that around just to use the iPod!?
