3 Million Novatel MiFis Shipped

Novatel Wireless, a trusted name in wireless access for mobile devices since the days of the palm pilot, has announced that they’ve shipped 3 millin mifi devices since they brought the mifi to market in 2009.

The MiFi is a can’t live without device for the folks here at thedroidguy and several other mobile work forces. The Mifi sets up a wifi hotspot anywhere you’re in your carriers coverage area.  The MiFi can then be used to broadcast wifi to up to 8 devices over 3g and in some cases 4g.

“Three years ago we introduced the MiFi Intelligent Mobile Hotspot and
revolutionized the way people access the Internet, from anywhere, anytime,²
says Peter Leparulo, CEO of Novatel Wireless. “The MiFi system architecture
brought a new user-experience to mobile broadband consumers, with one click
connect and no software to install. It also allows carriers to reach a
wider, more diverse subscriber base with innovative service opportunities.
We are very pleased to have achieved this milestone ­ illustrating our
significant market and product leadership for mobile hotspots.”

Novatel MiFi devices are offered on three of the top four major carriers; Sprint, Verizon Wireless and AT&T.
