“Tata Photon Walky is a unique device that will give the wireless landline users an opportunity to surf internet by creating a simultaneous Wi-Fi hotspot. With the rise in the number of smartphone and tablet users in India, there has been a shift in the way Internet is accessed by customers in addition to their otherwise voice usage. With Tata Photon Walky, we have addressed the internet needs of multiple users including Smartphone customers at home or on the move with a single, easy to use device.” said Mr. Gurinder Singh Sandhu, Head – Marketing, Mobility, Tata Docomo.
Wi-Fi hotspots are becoming an increasingly important category for customers who want to access internet simultaneously at home or on move.

Setting up the Tata Photon Walky is very easy, one needs to just press the Wi-Fi key on the Walky and start the Wi-Fi hotspot.
The Tata Photon Walky is an ideal solution for Wi-Fi-free conference rooms, impromptu brainstorming sessions, and even family road trips. Rather than requiring everyone in the room to use their own devices to get online, a single mobile hotspot can do the job more cost-effectively besides giving the benefit of making voice calls also.
