Are there any pictures of the device?  Just curious what it looks like.  I would like my boss to install one of these at his house.  He has horrible cell reception there.

I was not able to take a good picture during the presentation, but here you have an official one:



The device looks like a typical home router. You'll probably need to wait a few months to see it in the market, but the best way will be to ask your cellular provider about it. 5Barz is talking to all of them.

Nice looking device.  Where would a provider install it?  Looks like it needs a sheltered place.  Any idea about the price for personal use?

For what they told us you can install the device anywhere, as long as it gets at least some signal. It uses only 5W.
