SAN DIEGO, April 5, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Novatel Wireless , a leading provider of wireless broadband solutions, is pleased to announce that its MiFi(TM) Intelligent Mobile Hotspot has been named the Most Innovative Product (non-Handset) in the 2010 Mobile News Awards.

The MiFi platform represents the industry's first Intelligent Mobile Hotspot, a new category of mobile broadband that lets users put their world of content, services and connectivity in their pocket. Unlike existing router solutions that require an external broadband modem and serve only to provide connectivity, the MiFi platform creates a personal cloud of high-speed Internet connectivity that can be easily shared between multiple users and up to five Wi-Fi devices such as laptops, cameras, gaming devices and multimedia players. The MiFi Intelligent Mobile Hotspot serves as an intelligent, open platform capable of hosting advanced software applications and is flexible enough to address the continued evolution of mobile broadband.

This recognition from Mobile News highlights the unrivaled functionality, flexibility and convenience of the MiFi Intelligent Mobile Hotspot product line, as well as Novatel Wireless' ongoing dedication to leading the industry with innovative mobile connectivity solutions for our customers, said Rob Hadley, CMO, Novatel Wireless.
