With mobile broadband becoming more affordable for everyone, this device lets you create your own personal portable wifi hotspot out of your EVDO mobile broadband connection (e.g. via cellphone, usb cellular modem).

In this episode of theorycast, we introduce the amazing Cradlepoint EVDO wifi router, show you how we rigged our own battery pack for it, and at speeds of 1200kbps downstream and 700kbps upstream, you can run a decent mobile Wifi hotspot. That’s great news for lifecasters or anyone who wants a “3G iPhone”? 😉

You can learn more about both Cradlepoint routers, the CTR-350 (with WAN Ethernet port) and PHS300 (with internal battery), from a web site we like called, as well as their online forum. In fact, details of the constructing a battery unit for the router can be found there.
