    Cool. Battery-powered? Wonder how long it will last.
    Can it tap the power thru the USB?

    • Yes, battery powered. Can be used while charging with USB too. Tested for 2 power cycles. Battery can last around 5 hours.

  • What are the modem’s dimensions? I feel like it looks pretty small but there isn’t anything for comparison in your picture.

    • Haha… No official size from Maxis. Will do a comparison with iPad on coming review.

  • do you get to keep it after contract finish?

    • Depend… Need to wait for Maxis’ decision.
