Bell Mobility Starts Shipping MiFi Hotspot Device

Bell Mobility Starts Shipping MiFi Hotspot DeviceGetting ready to head home for the holidays? Want to make sure that you stay connected to the Internet the entire time on multiple devices? Bell Mobility is jumping to the rescue with the timely release of the Novatel MiFi 2372, a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot device that’ll work anywhere you have Bell coverage.

The credit card-sized device effectively takes the cellular connection that it receives and broadcasts that data connection back out as a Wi-Fi hotspot. This way, both you and your traveling companion can use the Internet with your respective laptops. You’ll want an appropriate data plan, of course.

Instead of working off the old Bell EVDO network, the Novatel MiFi 2372 latches onto the company’s new HSPA network. It’ll work with up to five devices, offering a total speed of up to 7.2Mbps. This isn’t quite the 21Mbps that’ll come with HSPA+, but it’s getting there.

The little handheld sells for $99.95 with a three-year contract. If you’re willing to wait it out, you might be able to get the new HSPA+ Internet Stick for about the same price. The trouble with that is that it’ll only hook up one laptop to the net.
