Wireless portable videophone has the huge negative I bring it up for everybody to understand the technology. First, I thought it’s great that anyone could bring videophone portable at coffee cafe, hotel or airport terminal where they have Wi-Fi spot. Unfortunately, there is problem you cannot get it work. Why?
Because almost every Wi-Fi spot are tense REQUIRED to use browser to login to activate the network. I have my experience on travel with my laptop with built-in 801.11. I have seen many place with free or not free Wi-Fi access. So, some advertise from VRS’ that you seen, are somewhere misled.
When I had VPAD, of course, it doesn’t come with built-in wireless equipment, as you would need to buy one to plug through USB slot. I recall that I do not see browser but only WEP support. I put a big bet that you WILL NOT get these work on HOVRS MVP and CSDVRS’s Z device either. None is freedom communicating you wanted on videophone portable.
I guess we will have to wait until 3G’s coverage in America improves. While some of you, include me, enjoy our laptop with high speed wireless modem or use mobile phone (3G or EVDO) as modem to plug up and able to use as videophone. I can wait and see if anyone would able to bring the true mobile phone with front of camera where you able to point yourself while you can see it. IPhone ain’t work out for you because it’s on the back, how ridiculous you dream about it.
