All-in-one boxes which include cell network "air cards" combined with
a router and WiFi access point will be hitting the market soon.  I've
seen a couple of prototypes over the past few weeks.  These boxes
allow you to setup a WiFi hotspot anywhere by getting the Internet
connection through the aircard and cellular network.  Pretty cool
stuff, but something Part 15'ers and some Hams have been homebrewing
for a while now.

Now we are starting to stray a little to far away from APRS so I'll
stop here.  ;-)
