Busy beavers everywhere now have another way to get work done while they travel. Skyroam has just announced its newest product, the Solis. It's a diminutive orange puck that packs the one-two punch of both LTE-powered Wi-Fi and a 6,000mAh battery. Service is even provided without a contract via fixed-price day passes. You can pick one up for yourself as of today for just $149.99 at Fry's Electronics.
Globe-trotters can get unlimited connectivity in over 100 countries. No juggling different SIMs or devices for each country and no exorbitant by-the-megabyte data prices or roaming fees. Day-passes for service, which seem to be the only options so far as plans go, run $9 a day. While that might be a bit steep for day-to-day use, if you travel for business it's a lot cheaper than some hotels charge for Wi-Fi.
Specs include USB-C charging, a 16 hours of battery life via a 6,000mAh battery that can also charge your phone, and support for up to 5 connected devices. And, of course, a bright and snazzy orange puck-shaped package to house it all.
I'm the sort who enjoys zipping down to the park during the day to do some work in the sun. Who wants to stay at home all day when you can relax out in the sun and call it work? Usually, I just grab data off my phone, but I've had it run dry a few times and been forced to head home. To that end, look forward to our review on the Solis, and plenty of articles written in the sun.
