Verizon’s MiFi Brings In A New Wave Of 3G Technology

May 7, 2009

Global (ChattahBox) – I read an interesting piece this morning, courtesy of David Pogue of the New York Times. It looks as though the inconvenience of cell phone Internet access may be a thing of the past, now that the Novatel MiFi 2200 has been announced.

The perfectly portable device is set to be released by Verizon later this month, and it promises a compact, sensible way to take online access with you wherever you may end up. It’s a great alternative to $60-a-month cellular modems for busy professionals, frequent travelers, or just those who like to live on the go.

The MiFi promises a personal, portable, powerful, password-protected wireless hot spot wherever you go. But what also makes this MiFi appealing is the price. At only $40 a month for full access, it makes it the most affordable 3G network available, and it doesn’t require you to buy your own separate cell modem to run it. The Novatel MiFi 2200, available from Verizon starting in mid-May does require $100 with two-year contract, after rebate.

Yes, folks, this is the future at our fingertips, and with the creation of WiFi, it’s about time someone came up with a product as simple and brilliant as this one.

    MiFi, is a portable wireless router that will deliver wireless 3G data network access to multiple users in a small area. About the size of a credit card, MiFi will let users select access to EVDO or HSPA high speed data networks.
