3 has updated its USB mobile broadband range with the E180, a model which can swivel through 270 degrees so that, as the site puts it, you can “optimise reception and position it for ultimate convenience”. In practice, the latter factor — being able to connect it without blocking other ports or laptop components — is probably the bigger selling point. The key also has a built-in Micro SD slot if you want to use it for storage. The E180 works on Windows and Mac OS X (and probably on Linux with a little tweaking). It costs $199 outright or between $5 and $10 a month on an existing plan. Of course, all the usual caveats about 3 being messy outside capital cities apply, though that might eventually change if the proposed merger with Vodafone goes through
