I have just bought an Asus Eee Pad Transformer ( Android) and would like to be truly mobile. It has no 3 G but if I buy a MIFI device I could use the WIFI connectivity. I would not anticipate using more than 1GB a month and this mainly in the summer when sailing.
What is the most suitable package for me?
Will it work?.
Can I use it abroad?
Any suggestions on a good, well priced device.
Many thanks Rob.

Unfortunately anything like that would be considered tethering so you would have to use a limited gigabag with any giffgaff sim.
An O2 device is best as you won't need to unlock it, anything else might require an unlock. You will need a way to get into the devices settings to change the APN to giffgaff.
You can use it abroad but you will be international roaming data rates which are very expensive.

You need to get yourself a USB dongle, but if wanting to use it abroad then it needs to be unlocked. You can then buy a data card in the country you're in.
I have an O2 dongle that was unlocked, but dongles, like phones, can be unlocked and usually free.
Have you sen this article on preparing your Transformer for using a USB dongle?
