Yota's unique LTE hotspot Video Transcript
A hotspot is just a hotspot, right? Well, maybe not. I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNET here at CTIA 2013 in Las Vegas. This is the Yota Ruby Hotspot. And it's got a couple very interesting design elements. First of all, this is a 4G LTE 3G and 2G multi-modal hotspot. It will also work in a ton of different countries. It's got a SIM card in the back and it supports bands throughout Europe and soon to US. One way that you'll know that you're changing modes is that this signal on the front and has LED behind it and it will light up. You can actually change the color online but it might light up green, for example, if you got 4G LTE, blue when you're on 3G and red when you're surfing 2G. One interesting thing you can do is that the power button is actually a slighter. If you flick it over to the left, then you will have a private network for just you. If you flick it over to the right, it becomes public and will support up to 10 devices. The reason you know it's public is because it's got a smiley face that shows up on the E-Ink display. You can charge it using this microUSB charging slot or you can also pop open a USB connection and charge it that way. Using it that way also doubles it as a USB modem. The Yota Ruby has a 2,100 mA hour of battery. It will run on standby mode for about 60 hours and it will run actively for about 16 hours without needing a charge. Yota Hotspot is advised to full charge up 78 percent battery capacity in only one hour. There's no pricing or availability yet for the US because there are no carrier partners. But it should sell for about $120 in Russia where it will come first. Look for this sort of near the end of the year. I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNET. This has been the Yota Ruby Hotspot.
