Spotwave Wireless, a developer of indoor wireless coverage solutions, was displaying a new indoor wireless antenna at the 2006 Consumer Electronics Show designed to help mobile devices get better coverage. The Spotwave Zen is due out in the second quarter of this year for $399.

The Zen will support cell phones, PDAs and other mobile devices across the entire PCS band (1900MHz). It reportedly will dramatically improve indoor wireless reception for these devices in spaces up to 2,500 feet by grabbing nearby PCS signals and boosting them within its coverage area. Features include easy setup, software controlled coverage, automatic adjustment of signal levels as needed, compatibility with most wireless carrier networks and support for CDMA, GSM, EVDO and UMTS in North America.
