Okay, it's not quite new as we did carry this once before. RokBlog readers may remember this post from February of 2007 where we raved about the Wi-Fire, which we did sell at the time. So why did we discontinue carrying it, and why are we offering it again now?
When we carried the Wi-Fire at the beginning of 2007, it was a brand new product, and hField (the manufacturer) was a brand new company. No one had heard of the Wi-Fire, and though we felt it was a revolutionary product and we did our best to spread the word, demand was low. Plus the price point last year was over $100.00 at most places, making it difficult for the product to gain market share (in our opinion).
Well, a lot has changed in the past year. The Wi-Fire has received coveted media attention wide and far, and demand is peaking. Customers are asking us why we, a company known for long range wireless networking products, don't carry the Wi-Fire. Well, if we listen to anyone it certainly is our customers. Plus (bonus in 3...2...1...) hField has helped out by lowering the price point of the product all the way down to where we can afford to sell it for just $79.99 plus shipping. Not bad at all for a 500mw USB adapter with a 10 dBi gain directional antenna. Not bad at all. Oh, and did we mention it is not only compatible with Windows XP and Vista, but Apple Macintosh OS 10.3, 10.4, and 10.5 (Leopard) as well?
