Korea Telecom has rolled out the "mini Egg" pocket router that enables users to add 4G connectivity to smartphones and tablets via a small mobile router.

The router, about the size of an egg, was developed by 4G chipmaker Sequans Communications S.A. and IGI Mobile, a Korean maker of wireless broadband communications devices. Sequans provided the 4G chip in the pocket router, while IGI Mobile manufactured the device.

"We are very pleased to work with IGI Mobile to deliver this powerful 4G product to the Korean marketplace," said Georges Karam, Sequans CEO. "The design is modern and compact, and it provides great value for users, allowing them to add 4G speed instantly to almost any mobile device."

"Sequans' technology has helped us to make a tiny mobile router that is about half the size of the previous version," said Daniel Park, CEO of IGI Mobile. "Sequans' very small SQN1220 chip solution and its ultra low power consumption technology allowed us to reduce the package and battery size significantly while delivering hours of continuous WiMAX surfing and overall a very high performance 4G router."

The mini Egg (KR-MR100) is already available from Korea Telecom.
