Kinivo announces new Wireless Enhanced USB Adapters
The world wants to do two things these days – to go paperless, as well as to go wireless. However, the former is a whole lot more difficult to achieve compared to the latter, but it should not stop anyone from actually trying to use up as little paper as possible. Having said that, to go wireless is a whole lot easier, and Kinivo intends to help us out on such a path by introducing a couple of new Wireless Enhanced USB Adapters, namely the WID320 and WID340 all-in-one solutions that will help enhance current Wi-Fi capabilities – regardless of whether you are at the office or at home.
Targeting different needs and price points, the WID340 which will retail for a mere $15.99 will sport dual-band capabilities so that users can connect to 5GHz and 2.4GHz networks as well as support speeds of up to 300 Mpbs. As for the WID320, this particular model will be made available for $9.99 a pop, where it will connect only to 2.4GHz networks. Using either one is a snap, really, where all that you need to do would be to plug either adapter directly into the USB port of your device, or to place the USB up to three feet away thanks to the included extension cable so that one can increase speed, improve signal strength and heighten overall wireless Internet performance at different levels.
Targeting students who happen to remain connected to Wi-Fi on campus, as well as business travelers who intend to look for some sort of reliable Internet access, the WID340 dual-band connectivity would provide you with an edge since it provides the device with extra power should one need to fall back on a fast, reliable connection to both 5GHz and 2.4GHz networks at a stable location or on-the-go. This particular device will play nice with Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux platforms, and security-wise, you need not fret since it will feature security encryption using WEP, WPA and WPA2 (TKIP+AES). Any takers?
