The device was based on the original E5, but the company stated that it had made further improvements to the E583c’s performance and stability.[10] The E583c converts 3.5G HSPA mobile signal into Wi-Fi coverage, automatically creating Internet access and individual Wi-Fi hotspots for up to five Wi-Fi-enabled digital devices. It can also provide simultaneous Internet access to a sixth device when it is connected to a laptop computer via a USB cable. The E583c weighs 90 grams and features a 1-inch color OLED display that shows information such as network operator details, signal strength, Wi-Fi connection status, and battery level. It enables wireless data transmission or online gaming on a range of Wi-Fi-enabled digital devices, including iPads, iPod Touch, netbooks, laptop computers, portable multimedia centers, game consoles, PDAs, mobile phones and digital cameras.[11]

The E583c is compatible with Windows, Mac or Linux and has data transmission speeds of up to 5.76Mbit/s (uplink) and 7.2Mbit/s (download). It also has a built-in microSD memory card slot (maximum 32GB) that can be used as a USB memory stick.[11] Linux requires a driver that is not shipped with the unit.

Customers getting up to 42,2 Mbit/s throughout the DC-HSPA+ technology. The upload speed provides 11 Mbit/s (HSUPA). Beside WiFi IEEE 802.11 b/g the Huawei E587 also supports IEEE 802.11n. The OLED-Display expose signal strength with technology, current operator, battery lifetime, amount of the current WiFi users, incoming messages and internet connection status. The mobile Hotspot has an internal memory slot for microSD card that supports up to 32GB and approximately 5 hours battery life (2200 mAh). Additionally the device has an external antenna connector (TS-9).

E589[edit]

On 13 January 2012, Huawei unveils the world’s first multi-mode WiFi device, the Huawei E589, at the CES. In comparison with the predecessor the Huawei E589 supports LTE category 3 (100 Mbit/s downlink and 50 Mbit/s uplink) and provides internet connection up to 10 devices. Connected to 3G the MiFi reaches download speed up to 42,2 MBit/s. The E589 also features a TFT screen displaying information such as the amount of data used, speed of the current connection and length of browsing time. The mobile Hotspot has an internal memory slot for microSD card that supports up to 32GB and approximately 6 hours battery life (3000 mAh). Additionally the device has an external antenna connector (TS-9). Vodafone offers a branded version, the R210, which is nearly similar to the original device.
