Novatel Wireless, Inc. (Nasdaq: NVTL), a provider of wireless broadband access solutions, today announced its MiFi® 3352 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot with DLNA media server capabilities is now available through additional distributors in the European market, including MobilX, Multiplex, Siglo and IME.

The MiFi DLNA® Server resides on the MiFi 3352 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot and runs on the MiFi OS™ as an application to provide simple, hassle-free media sharing.

“The DLNA CERTIFIED® MiFi 3352 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot improves the end user experience by allowing access to a user’s personal content such as video, music or pictures and allowing that content to be shared across multiple devices while on-the-go,” said Rob Hadley, CMO of Novatel Wireless. “We are excited in the interest of both our intelligent mobile hotspot and DLNA Certified devices in Europe and believe the addition of four distribution partners in the region will enable us to provide our innovative mobile broadband solutions to a broader range of customers.”

The evolution of MiFi OS to support DLNA capabilities adds to the robust line of productivity applications for the MiFi, which already includes widgets for GeoSearch, GeoWeather, data usage tracking and SMS. The device’s ease-of-use combined with its advanced mobile broadband functionality is driving the adoption of the MiFi as the preferred connectivity method for anyone looking to stay connected on their Wi-Fi capable gadgets.
