Five of Spades
Internet access is increasingly important as you upgrade your mobile workforce. But Internet access can be hard to come by on the road. The digital PBX systems found in many hotels and businesses are not compatible with standard dial-up modems. In rare cases, they can even damage your hardware. OSItech's Five of Spades eliminates that possibility. It allows laptops to use digital PBX lines, just like they use regular phone lines. Perfect for people in the field.
The Five of Spades retails for about $120. For more information visit the company's Web site
