    Interesting gadget coming out in April from D-Link that might be of interest to some people:

    INTERNATIONAL CES, LAS VEGAS – Jan. 10, 2012 – D-Link today unveiled an innovative new product every traveling tablet and smartphone owner needs – the D-Link® All-in-One Mobile Companion (DIR-505).

    yeah, this thing looks awesome. Hits all the right buttons, can't wait till it comes out. Although, rumor is that there is a new Apple AE coming out too.

    Does anyone have experience with the D-Link DIR-505?

    I have one and have used on two trips. My first it worked flawlessly, the second Ive had problems with disconnects from the hotel wired connection. I have to run the setup wizard without making any changes and it reconnects. Not sure if this is hotel or DIR-505 related.

    Thanks!
