The Vodafone K4201 3G data dongle has been launched in India to tap into the growing internet market in the country. It has been priced at under Rs 1,000 and claims to offer a really good download speed to its postpaid customers.
According to the service provider, this is India’s first 3G USB dongle capable of clocking in a speed of 21.1Mbps while downloading and 5.76Mbps for uploading. And not only does it manage to provide good results, but also appear eye pleasing. It can be picked up in black, red or dual tone white and red shades. A customer-friendly interface and high network efficiency are a couple of other features that users can expect from the gadget.
It goes without saying that it works in conjunction with almost any operating system including Windows 8, Mac OS X, Ubuntu, Fedora and Linux. The gadget can even double up as a USB flash drive, considering that a microSD card slot has been carved into its chassis. It supports a memory card of not more than 32GB capacity.
This dongle has been loaded with a new dialer complete with user support functionality and as soon as a new version of the dialer is out, it can be downloaded via an online software upgrade. It is possible to get data limit alerts and even monitor usage to keep your bill in check and instant access to ‘My Vodafone’ and ‘Vodafone Online’ is inevitable. In case you do not wish to use the storage functionality, simply disable it or you can lock the SIM card as well.
The Vodafone K4201 data dongle is available with a 100% cash back offer on 3G plans of Rs 650, Rs 750 and Rs 850. You get your money back in the form of Rs 100 discount every month for an entire year. And if you pay in advance for 6 months, you can expect 2 extra months’ usage free. It is only made for postpaid customers.
