    Default Mobile wifi router with ith SIM card?

    I'm vaguely looking for a mobile router with a SIM card (although I have a suitable SIM card from a dongle)

    can anyone advise if the below is any good or if there is a better one to get. Cheaper is better for me but preferably still good!!!

    I have use of a Three branded, but unlocked Huawei E586, it's pretty funky... and a previous generation to the ones you're looking at.

    I believe the correct terminology is 'MiFi'

    Huawei are a massive Chinese company who makes loads of stuff, a lot branded for other people, I almost spunked 40K on a SAN, but chickened out in the end and went for Equallogic.

    Any Android or Windows phone less than four years old should do it. Watch the data cost, mobile providers differ widely for data costs.
