Shenzhen, China - The innovative power of TP-LINK impressed the 37-member jury of experts for the “red dot award: product design 2013”. Those who succeed in winning over the renowned experts in the field can decorate their product creation with the “red dot” and position themselves at an international level. The jury members were delighted to receive 4,662 entries in 19 different categories in this year’s competition. Only the best designs were able to win the enthusiasm of the jury, which is how the M5350 received the red dot for its successful design creation.
The awards ceremony for the seal of quality that is recognised worldwide takes place on 1 July 2013 as part of the traditional red dot gala. The ceremony – held in Essen’s opera house, the impressive Aalto Theater – is always the final highlight of the “red dot award: product design” and over the past years has become established as a celebratory ceremony with international guests. M5350 will then be put on display during a four-week special exhibition in the red dot design museum.
The M5350 incorporates several communications technologies in tandem with a powerful battery to provide a mobile wireless sharing experience to rival home or office networking, in a minute, pocket-ready form factor. Supporting HSPA+ broadband connectivity, the device has access to download speeds up to 21Mbps and upload speeds of 5.76Mbps, which combined with the device's 802.11n chipset and internal antenna, allows for a shared high-speed internet networking experience anywhere 3G broadband is available.The device's 2000mAh internal rechargeable battery also affords users up to 6 hours of 3G sharing, while its OLED display provides crucial data, including WLAN, Internet, 3G Signal Strength, Battery Level, Messages and Connection Mode. The M5350 also features a micro SD card slot to accommodate up to 32GB of flash memory and micro USB port to be used with an external power adapter or USB port to charge the device.
Prof. Dr. Peter Zec, initiator and CEO of the red dot, has pointed out that strong design competence and economic success nowadays go hand in hand: “The winners of the ‘red dot award: product design 2013’ are the protagonists of a highly developed design culture and design industry. These days it is becoming more and more difficult to distinguish between well-designed products. It is often only in the details that the special qualities become apparent. However, those product creations that pass the test before the critical eyes of the international red dot jury will not disappear into the crowd and will be able to fend off global competition.”
The winning products in the red dot design museum
With around 2,000 products spread over an area of more than 4,000 square meters, the red dot design museum houses the largest exhibition of contemporary design worldwide. From 2 to 28 July 2013, the museum will host the traditional special exhibition of the award-winning products. In “Design on stage – winners red dot award: product design 2013”, design enthusiasts can marvel at the latest trends at close quarters. Visitors are expressly invited to handle the pieces, allowing them to experience live in the breathtaking atmosphere of the red dot design museum the prize-winning design of TL-M5350 from TP-LINK.
The red dot design award
