iiNet’s big selling point for BoB is its looks, with the site boasting about its “modern design with black premium glass look & feel, and no external antennae” That last point would cue a reception panic for me right away, but the Belkin-designed and manufactured unit claims a range of 100 metres.
Unsurprisingly, BoB is only being sold to iiNet customers, at $369 outright (including a handset) or $269 if you sign up for a 24-month contract. Additional handsets are $69 each.
Does BoB hit the spot for you, or would you rather pay less (a lot less in some cases) for a traditional router/modem bundle? Is it impossible to think of the product without remembering Microsoft’s failed Bob interface? Offer your thoughts in the comments.
