All-access box Some people use two Wi-fi routers to access the internet over the 2.4-gigahertz wireless spectrum and the less-crowded 5GHz wireless spectrum but why not employ one device to access both? The WRT610N Simultaneous Dual-N Band wireless router (above) from Linksys, a division of networking gear maker Cisco Systems, can access both bands simultaneously without any loss of speed. The 2.4GHz band is for wireless data transmission using older computers and network-ready digital cameras while the 5GHz band handles high-speed streaming of online audio and video through new smartphones and computers. Easy to set up, the WRT610N Dual-N Band wireless router costs HK$1,499. Speak system The elegant Altec Lansing T612 digital speaker system (below left) provides high-quality sound and ensures that no iPhone calls are missed when the device is docked. Music played on the compact device is paused whenever a call is received. After the call, the music resumes where it left off. Unlike other iPod or iPhone speaker systems, the T612 has a so-called internal GSM shield to keep its speakers from picking up the intermittent hiss of mobile-phone interference. So there's no need to set your iPhone on aircraft mode. Sadly, the system lacks FM radio and video-output features, available in other speakers. The T612, which comes with a wireless remote control, sells for HK$1,800 at the online Apple Store. Latin lesson Samsung Electronic's answer to Apple's iPhone is the lookalike Anycall Omnia i908. The 3.5G touch-screen smartphone's name means 'everything' in Latin and that's what the device tries to deliver. The iPhone's 2-megapixel camera pales in comparison to the Omnia's 5-megapixel snapper with automatic focus and panoramic shot functions. Internal storage capacity is the same, at up to 16 gigabytes, but the Omnia supports a 16GB microSDHC memory card. That potential 32GB capacity is equivalent to 23 DVD-quality movies or 8,000 MP3 tracks. The iPhone has a larger 3.5-inch display but its Korean rival touts a long-life detachable battery. Both devices have Wi-fi and Global Positioning System support. The Windows-based Anycall Omnia i908 is priced at HK$5,980.
