Securifi’s Almond is out. For awhile now the world’s first Wi-Fi router and range extender with a touch screen interface has been shipping in the U.S., Canada and Europe. You can thank us for the lateness later.
First introduced at the 2012 International CES earlier this year, Almond initially made headlines for its modern design and simple touch screen interface that configures in seconds and does away with PC or Mac based setup or maintenance. After all, that was going to be their big draw – going after the non-technical users.
The Almond integrates a 2.8-inch 320×240 touchscreen to help novice users set up and configure their router. Using the touchscreen, users can view and set their SSID and network password in plain text, see the status of their Internet connection, view information about the router’s IP and MAC addresses, and even configure the router as a range extender, an advanced feature normally reserved for more expensive routers (or routers with custom firmware like DD-WRT).
