The editors didn't like

  • Runs hot. Battery drains quickly when multiple Wi-Fi devices connect. No 3G connectivity when charging.
  • The Sprint Novatel Wireless MiFi 2200 mobile has a few shortcomings
  • Including support for only five clients at a time
  • The lack of support for the Wireless-N standard
  • And a limited and expensive data plan.
  • Limited to five users or devices connected at a time.
  • Limited range
  • Gets very warm
  • 3G network speeds can vary widely. Initial tethered setup is a bit unclear. Can't charge battery and transmit WiFi simultaneously.
  • Four hours of battery life is fine — six would be awesome. Wired policy mandated that we give ours back
  • Broadband network not very broad in rural areas
  • As fast as cheap DSL
  • Turns on accidentally
  • Requires expensive service plan.
  • Battery life was a bit short
  • We wish it could last all day. $60 per month plan might be prohibitive for consumers. ...
  • No easy way to get a good indication of signal strength without a computer.
  • No way to gauge signal strength on device itself
  • Only 3G in the face of the onrushing 4G behemoths
  • Annoying performance limitations with lower-power Wi-Fi devices like tablets and handhelds
  • Power button is very sensitive
  • Speeds vary greatly

  • If you want 3G connectivity on your iPad, you should probably get a tablet with the necessary hardware built-in. But if you live in an area where Verizon offers good coverage and AT&T coverage is spotty, this is a viable option. And because the MiFi...

  • For a gadget nut who travels a lot and craves consistent connection speeds, the MiFi is a great piece of gear. And now that Virgin Mobile has sweetened the deal by offering the device and data plan with no commitments, the MiFi is hard to resist. See ...

  • Abstract:  Two years ago, mobile broadband was levied out on a per-device basis: one connection per gadget. Novatel Wireless changed that with their MiFi, a portable 3G router that shared a single wireless connection with up to five WiFi devices. Now, Virgin Mobi...

  • Put simply, if we found ourselves trying to get work done and we suddenly needed an Internet connection, we would definitely choose the Overdrive if we were in a 4G coverage area. The data speeds are the Overdrive's saving grace, because otherwise, th...

  • Because of the cost, the MiFi will likely remain a niche product. Even at the lowest rate plan, this is not something for the mass market. If you can afford it, however, the MiFi will bring an enormous amount of convenience to your mobile lifestyle an...
