“As demand for WiFi and use of the social web continues to grow, FON keeps creating WiFi products that give people what they really want,” said Martin Varsavsky, CEO of FON. “The Fonera 2.0n is not only a router that lets you connect to the world’s largest WiFi community for free. It’s a real social gadget that frees up you and your computer from tedious waiting for uploads and downloads and even ‘talks’ to you via Twitter status updates.”

Main Features Of Fonera 2.0n:

  • FON’s revolutionary WiFi sharing and money making functionality thanks to 802.11n wireless technology
  • Integrated USB port and Fonera 2.0n management software allow users to connect portable hard drives and other USB devices
  • Ability to backup files to a hard drive
  • Access a printer or webcam from anywhere
  • Upload photos automatically from a USB storage device to Facebook, Flickr or Picasa, as well as set the device to download BitTorrent files – even with your computer shut down
  • Automatically post status messages to Twitter, alerting users to while an upload or download has completed or when a visitor has connected to their WiFi signal
  • Access your externall HDD wirelessly (NAS support)
  • Compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista, Mac and Linux OS

“The deep integration of online file sharing, social networks, and other Web 2.0 content into our already busy daily lives translates into more hours spent at the computer, greater energy use and more greenhouse emissions,” added by Varsavsky. “By enabling users to handle basic computing tasks from the router instead of the PC, we’re taking a small step towards reducing power consumption without limiting functionality.”

The new Fonera 2.0n that maintains all the features of previous FON Wi-Fi routers is now available in Europe and USA for euro 79 and USD $99, respectively.
