Toshiba Launches Wi-Fi 'Hot Spot In A Box' Project

Toshiba is pushing forward into the WiFi hotspot business by launching a “hotspot in a box” product for resellers to offer to places such as convenience stores. Yet another example of a big player treading where a startup failed. This is a somewhat (though, not quite) similar proposition that failed startup Joltage which was also offering “hotspots in a box”. Once again, being a big company is no guarantee that they’ll do any better – but at least Toshiba realizes the money is in selling the hardware, and not running the commercial hotspot service.
