Google introduces OnHub WiFi Router


In 2015, most devices are leaked so much we’re never surprised in the tech space, today Google switched up on us and brought us something we weren’t expecting! The OnHub WiFi router is a project with TP-LINK, a company well-known for making mostly budget routers. The router is not a square box like most, instead it adopts a cylindrical design familiar from the Amazon Echo. The design looks incredibly sleek and would be a nice looking item to add your desk setup. OnHub will feature OTA updates, smartphone app control, and many more exciting features for Android nerds to play around with!

Inside the OnHub application, users can view how much data their home uses on how many devices. It is also possible to set priority devices, this way you don’t drop WiFi connection on your important business laptop while your kid streams Netflix The  OnHub router also has a circular built-in antenna for better signal coverage inside any given space.

Priced at $199, OnHub is definitely not the cheapest router option out there, but it does come packed with some impressive specs. For that price, you get features 802.11a/b/g/n/ac,  Bluetooth Smart Ready, Weave, and 802.15.4. This router will last you a long while! With 4 GB of onboard storage and regular software updates, there should be additional features added to OnHub after launch. Did we mention it also has a speaker? Perhaps OnHub will eventually be an Amazon Echo competitor after all. The device comes in blue and black, but black is only available from the Google store and is sold out right now. You can still grab the device in blue from Newegg, Walmart, or Fry’s Electronics, hit the links below!

Get OnHub from: Amazon, Newegg, Fry’s, Walmart.

I fell in love with Android with the Nexus One release and realized that it was superior to iOS in all the ways I care about. I still use a Mac (and an iPhone for the camera), but my Apple tech products pale in comparison to my number of Android devices (watches, tablets, and phones). When I’m not rooting/modding one of my many Android phones or doing math/programming, you can find me taking in Phoenix Suns/Arizona Diamondbacks games in downtown Phoenix, and drinking good beer!"
