You will find something amazing.



HUAWEI E368 VS HUAWEI E369 HSPA+ 21Mbps USB Dongle

When we first see the Huawei E369 Himini 3G data card, we were attracted by the smart design and the slimness. There is only 8mm for thickness, and there are many optional colors available. The design and color should be the one of the factors that attracted us.



The most important is that Huawei E369 HSPA+ USB Surfstick has great ability to be compatible with the almost all the 3G WCDMA/UMTS networks. The UMTS bands that it could work not only include the 850MHz, which is common American 3G bands, but also 900/2100 MHz, the popular band in Europe.


What’s more, Huawei E369 supports 3G WCDMA AWS bands(1700 MHz). The AWS bands are available in only a few countries, such as Japan and USA. So if you are lucky to have a Huawei E369, you could travel around the world and it will keep you connected with network without compatibility problem.



Huawei E369 supports maximum download speed up to 21Mbps, under current network status, this should be a good speed that most user can’t reach even in good network atmosphere.



Perhaps because Huawei E368 is customized by the US operator AT&T, we didn’t see Huawei officially released this 3G USB dongle. It’s also named by AT&T as Unlocked AT&T USB Connect Force 4G E368. Unlike Huawei E369 compact USB design, Huawei E368 is in rotate USB design. The USB could be rotated for total 360 degrees. It also supports HSPA+ peak download speed up to 21Mbps.



To work with the AT&T 3G network, Huawei E368 supports 3G UMTS 850/2100 MHz that Huawei E369 could also work with. So if you have HUAWEI E369 in hand, it can work like E368 to keep connected with network for surfing.



However, HUAWEI E368 has some features that HUAWEI E369 doesn’t have. HUAWEI E368 has MicroSD card slot and external antenna, in this point, HUAWEI E368 would be more powerful. Because with the memory card slot, user could read file from the card and if in remote areas, external antenna would help to get better signal strength and higher speed for data transmission.

In most cases, HUAWEI E369 would be enough for users to get connected with Internet. And HUAWEI E368 would be optional if you need the antenna or memory card functions. In conclusion, they are both reliable 3G USB modems. If you want any of them, welcome to shop from .


What’s the Difference Between HUAWEI E3331 and HUAWEI E369?

At the CES 2013, we found Huawei released a new 3G USB stick, the model number is Huawei E3331. The appearance of E3331 looks like E369, but there must be something different from the two models.


Huawei says Huawei UltraStick E3331 is the world’s smallest USB data card, which is very light and thin. It’s said that E3331 is the best partner for Apple Mac Ultra book. Perhaps Huawei is following the trend for mobile devices, such as mobile phones, tablets and electronics, to make them thinner and lighter. But we remembered that Huawei also said Huawei E369 is the world’s slimmest data card, and then what’s the difference between the two brother models?




The Huawei E3331 and E369 both support HSPA+ download peak speed up to 21.6Mbps. They both support 3G UMTS/WCDMA network 900/2100 MHz, Huawei E369 seems more powerful because it could work on five UMTS/WCDMA 850/900/AWS/1900/2100MHz, which means Huawei E369 could work on more 3G networks, especially with the 3G operators in Japan and USA.



They both don’t support the Micro SD memory card, which should be limited by the slim body space. However, Huawei E3331 incorporates HiLink technology, which helps Huawei E3331 get connected to network in 15 seconds. And the advantage of HiLink is that no driver is needed to install and user can manage the modem via Web UI. With HiLink, Huawei E3331 would auto real the SIM card, auto setup the parameters and auto connect. So this should be the key feature that different from E369.


What’s more, Huawei E3331 also supports IPV 6. As we know, here now, there is only few models that could support IPV 6. So Huawei E3331 should be the first 3G modem to support IPV 6. And around the February 2013, HUAWEI E3331 would be available in Philippines, and it’s expected this would be available for more operators. If you need unlocked HUAWEI E3331, welcome to shop from .
