Securifi Announces Almond -- World First Touch Screen Wireless Router and Range Extender for the Post-PC EraFinally a Router and Wireless Range Extender That Anyone Can Configure in 5 Seconds (May 14, 2012)
TAIPEI, TAIWAN -- (Marketwire) -- 05/14/12 -- Securifi Ltd today announced the highly anticipated US launch of Almond, the world's first wireless router with a color touch screen that configures in seconds and does away with PC or Mac based setup or maintenance.
Almond also works as a Range Extender, which will dramatically improve the wireless performance of a consumer home network without the hassle.
"Anyone who has tried to install a Range Extender knows how difficult it can be to make it work. Almond simply plugs into your existing router-setup and becomes a powerful a range extender with superior range in seconds. This is plug and play at its finest," says Rammohan Malasani, CEO of Securifi Ltd.
Router setup and maintenance is handled directly on Almond's built in 320 x 240 pixel 2.8" full-color touch screen, and the Windows Mobile-inspired user-interface.
"Our research shows that 9 out of 10 consumers are frustrated with setting up Wireless Routers and having to log in via a PC just to change a setting. Almond's touch screen interface completely eliminates the need for the intimidating web-driven interfaces consumers have struggled with for over a decade," says Malasani.
Almond has two internal antennas, 300Mbps MIMO throughput, full 802.11b/g/n compatibility, industry-standard WPA/WPA2 security, and basement-to-bedroom range match specs from major brands like Linksys or Netgear.
"We are currently in negotiations with major retailers across North America for early summer availability at a $79 price tag. This is an extremely competitive price for a touch screen wireless router that also acts as a Range Extender that installs in seconds," says Malasani.
