At IFA 2011, the little miracle box from Samsung was appraised on the Vodafone booth for the first time. Until mid-2012, Vodafone still not introduced the unit in its hardware portfolio. We therefore do not believe that the Samsung Mini-Hotspot GT-B3800 will be in the product range of Vodafone from the body logo. Especially in August, the Vodafone R210 is available, which is a far better alternative. Nevertheless, you will find following some basic data for the GT-B3800 Overview.



The dimension of Samsung GT-B3800 is just as large as a “high” credit card. At just 1.17 cm height and 9 cm long, the GT-B3800 fits easily into any pocket. The GT-B3800 supports virtually all relevant standards. The Samsung GT-B3800 support LTE range on frequency bands at 800 MHz, 1.8 GHz and 2.6 GHz, and UMTS & HSPA networks. In addition, the 2G standards is backward compatible for “emergency” if there is no LTE & 3G networks available.


The Mini-Router is a good partner for tourists and business travelers. Because the GT-B3800 is also a true wireless router, which can serve up to 5 users simultaneously. So it’s ideal for a meeting or a presentation in a restaurant on vacation. The WLAN module allows connections to the 802.11 standard in the categories N, G and B. Encrypts is optional with WEP, WPA or WPA2.



Even in September 2012, Vodafone GT-B3800 was only available via Ebay. Since it’s not yet clear whether and when Vodafone receives the Samsung Hotpot router into the program and the price seems a little big high, we recommend the cheaper models such as Vodafone R210 or R215, or technically better model Huawei E5786 4G Pocket router.
