    Taiwanese company Securify showed off a new wireless router concept, called "Almond". Simply put, it is a wireless 802.11 b/g/n (n 300 Mbps) router with an inbuilt 2.8" 320 x 240 pixel touchscreen, with its own configuration program, which allows you to configure it on the device, without needing a browser-based setup. Its native setup program also comes with "safe" pre-configured settings for the uninitiated.

    Its wireless networking component supports 300 Mbps speed with MIMO technology, supporting up to 50 clients at a time, with a range of up to 25 meters. Apart from an upstream WAN port, there are two downstream 100 Mbps Ethernet ports. Most current security standards such as WPA2, WPA, WEP are supported. Securify did not give out any more information.

    Looks fantastic.

    but...
    I would expect just a wee bit more from the ethernet ports.

    it looks cool and all, but is there a reason a web-based interface or tunnel is bad on a wireless router? why pay a premium for a screen on something that if configured properly doesn't need to be touched for months at a time? this is just for show imo.

    Yeah, if it had a USB port for storage that screen might get used more.

    And dual port Gbe controllers, they're cheap, use one! :D

    Did they put Windows Phone software on it, or is Microsoft going to be suing them soon? Looks a little too much like the Metro theme to me.

    looks pretty sleek as if Jobs designed it himself, except then it would have been white

    Gimmick. The router itself is only 100 megabits, making it pretty weak for home networking. And touchscreen... really? When would that be more useful than buttons or a web UI? Have you ever thought "Oh well I don't know about this web interface, and the keyboard and mouse I'm used to, I wish I could get onto the floor my belly and fiddle with a resistive touchscreen I'm entirely unfamiliar with."

    Idea is really fantastic!!!


    I guess, this LCD idea is not bad. It is appreciable. What I heard that these folks are trying to get it available under $70 itself. So, its not bad as having a whole new technology with great looking in such an affordable price. So, why follow the old web interface only, sometime it gives hard time::banghead: Hope, this 'Almond' should be available very soon to the world!!!:):rockout:
