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.
