Verizon Wireless Will Launch Samsung Ubicell

Mon Oct 27, 2008 - 10:37 AM EDT - By Jennifer Chappell

We've talked about the Sprint AIRAVE a few times over the past year. If you recall, the AIRAVE is a CDMA femtocell device that creates a CDMA signal for your mobile phone (like a miniature cell tower). The AIRAVE provides enhanced and reliable mobile phone coverage in your house or office even if your existing wireless coverage is poor.

Engadget Mobile is reporting (via Cell Phone Signal) that Verizon Wireless will soon be releasing a CDMA Base Station from Samsung called Ubicell.

According to Engadget Mobile, there's no mention of a price or release date yet, but from looking over the user manual, installation and operation will be exactly the same as Sprint AIRAVE. Engadget Mobile reviewed the AIRAVE and found it to work great in improving call quality and signal strength. One of their few minor annoyances with the AIRAVE was that it won't operate without a GPS lock proving that you're currently located in the U.S. Seems that the Samsung Ubicell for Verizon will be the same.

If you're a Centro or Treo user on Verizon and you don't get a decent cell signal where you live, you might want to think about the Ubicell when it becomes available.
