Wi-Fi: Get the latest technology in your pocket

Updated on December 26, 2016

The best devices which offer Wi-Fi connectivity and browser, also check out the prices (as on 18/09/2008 market prices)

Archos 705

Who needs a portable media player when you can have an internet media tablet? The Archos 705 might not have the drop-dead good looks of an I Pod Touch, but when it comes to surfing capabilities, it leaves other devices far behind. You have a choice of 160 GB or 320 GB, besides the 7- inch touch screen on ARM cortex processor, Adobe flash 9 video support and full email application. If you want more, there are plug-ins galore, especially if you want to watch TV on the move or transfer content to watch on TV.

Price: $450 (160 GB) $550 (320 GB)

I Pod Touch

It's a good thing Steve Jobs and others at Apple don't believe in resting on their laurels. Otherwise, we'd still be drooling over the click wheel on the classic I Pod instead of being blown away. What sets it apart is that it is Wi-Fi enabled and comes loaded with the Safari browser. The pinch-and-expand function allows you to zoom in and out of a page. Subscribe to mobile Me and you can keep your email, contacts and calander up tp date with your Mac or Pc.

Price: $350 (8 GB), $426 (16 GB), $529 (32 GB)

Sony PSP

Gamers drool over what is considered one of the best portable gaming consoles. For others, the playstation portable is a great way to stay connected using a pocket-sized device. It has a 4.3 inch scree, built-in skype calls, location free TV to keep radio and you can still play the games.

Price: $193

Cowon Q5W

The portable internet device seems made for your car. For, besides the standard browser options, the Cowon Q5W comes with a voice-enabled messenger service and an optional GPS reciever antenna and an FM transmitter. Switch for audio playback on a vehicle radio. Plus, there is a wireless remote control. Want more? Check out the built-in FM radio and recorder, voice recorder with internal microphone, built in stereo speakers, Tv-out supporting components, S-video and composite connections.

Price: $430, $513

You also get an integrated QWERTY keyboard, touch screen display and a Flash plug-in.
