Smart Communications, the country's largest communications provider, announced today the Smart Pocket WiFi, a device that will enable mobile users taste and enjoy the speeds of LTE without the restrictions of LTE-enabled devices.
The Smart Pocket WiFi, a hotspot the size of a smartphone, has the power of also recently released Smart LTE dongle, but more mobile. It also has connectivity capability of up to ten devices simultaneously, and unlike previous iterations of mobile hotspots, the Smart Pocket WiFi has a ridiculously long signal reach.

Sadly, there are still no plans nor pricing for the Smart Pocket WiFi. It will be supposedly announced very soon.
If you can't wait to get your hands on Smart LTE though, they have launched the Smart LTE 3500 dongle last August. For P3,500 a month, you'll get 10GB of data lightning fast, right at your computer. The plan is currently offering unlimited data up until October 2012.
What do you think about Smart's new LTE device? Would it be a good buy at the right price?
'Till my next installment.
