The VPN world is packed with alternatives, devices and providers, all of which promise you the Canaan of web surfing. However, these solutions are very different from each other and can easily confuse users, so they might have no idea what they should invest their money in. To make things much clearer, ZenMate developed NAVIA, a new portable VPN device that promises to be a breath of fresh air in the overflowing market. The German VPN company is carrying out a fund-raising campaign until the end of February via Indiegogo, and already has to deal with an incredible amount of pre-orders. Depending on the number of the pre-ordered devices, assembling will start in March, while the first deliveries are expected to be in August 2017.
A New VPN Concept
NAVIA is a portable VPN device that requires no installation whatsoever, and can be used on any device, including computers, smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, game consoles and a whole lot more. NAVIA also comes with a bunch of different plans from annual to lifelong subscriptions. Keep in mind that in order to use NAVIA, you’ll need a premium ZenMate membership.
Despite being a portable device, NAVIA acts just like a regular VPN: it protects all IoT devices and platforms, regardless of the operating system, and also creates a secure hotspot that you can connect your other devices to. Once connected, you are able to choose your server from ZenMate’s list of 30+ locations by only typing “Navia/” in the address bar and then you can enjoy your geographically unrestricted content.
Technical Specifications and Pricing
NAVIA is a Linux-based system featuring 1GHz 64-bit multi-core CPU with 1GB RAM, a smart dual band radio for a greater Wi-Fi range and an amazing 128GB internal memory space for secured personal storage purposes. Furthermore, you can even use your NAVIA to charge any device, since it features a built-in lithium-ion battery and a USB charge port. You can also create P2P connections between two or more NAVIA devices, assuring smart tunneling on NAVIA-to-NAVIA connections to safely access your most sensitive data under constant encryption.
As for pricing, it heavily depends on various factors, such as the number of NAVIAs you want to purchase, and the existence of your ZenMate subscription. With this being said, prices vary between €83 (around $89) and €2,499 (over $2,682). For the latter you get 10 NAVIAs in your favorite color, a lifetime subscription on ZenMate and much more.
