It’s a handheld Internet tablet, with GPS built- in too. Orange are currently rolling out WiMax networks across Africa, so check their availability before plonking down your cash.

Sony PSP Q US$ 200 Q www. sony. com There’s no point discussing Wi- Fi technology without including the PSP. Sony’s portable games console makes more use of its Wi- Fi connection than any of these gadgets. Sure, it’s a little older than most, but inside is enough electronic horsepower to grab live Internet radio, browse web pages, and even stream video over the Internet. If you’ve got a PlayStation 3 at home too, it’ll tap into it using its Wi- Fi connection and let you play games as if you were in front of the console, using a special feature Sony calls Remote Play. It can even stream Blu- Ray films if you’ve left the disk in the PS3’ s drive. How’s that for showing off the power of the Internet? 74 from Top: Nokia N810 WiMax Edition, Eye- Fi memory card and Sony PSP WIMAX TECHNOLOGY IS SO NEW THERE AREN’T ANY LAPTOPS WITH IT BUILT IN ON SALE YET.
