Developed by San Diego based Omniwav Mobile, the patent pending WavBoard takes a broadband Internet connection and puts it on wheels.

The WavBoard, an in-car Internet system, is introducing computer users to a freedom they've never had. Developed by San Diego based Omniwav Mobile, the patent pending WavBoard takes a broadband Internet connection and puts it on wheels. Families will enjoy the convenience of its multiple-user feature. Mom and dad can stay connected on their laptops while the kids play Xbox live, do homework, and chat online with friends.

Although it shouldn't be used while driving, an in-car Internet system is great for passengers. Creating mobile offices in carpools will allow commuters to get a head start on the work day. Professionals who work outside the office now have seamless connectivity. Mobile broadband is also available for boaters; the WavBoard maintains a reliable Internet connection up to 30 miles offshore.

Emergency response vehicles can rely on the high-speed connection while moving up to 100 miles per hour. Ambulances can synchronize data with computers at the hospital. Fire rescue crews can download building schematics en-route.

Mounted in the trunk or glove compartment, the small 10" x 6"' WavBoard connects to the Internet using high-speed cellular technology. Internet users connect via Wi-Fi or Ethernet like any home wireless router. The speed averages 600-800 kbps, the same as a household DSL line. The WavBoard vehicle package is $979.00. The service is $79.00 per month for unlimited use and is currently available in more than 50 metro areas. Service will be available nationwide in 2006.
