Industry's First Intelligent Mobile Hotspot Receives Coveted Industry Recognition From Mobile Entertainment Forum
SAN DIEGO, June 28, 2010 - Novatel Wireless, Inc. (Nasdaq: NVTL), a provider of wireless broadband
access solutions, is pleased to announce that its MiFi(R) Intelligent Mobile
Hotspot has been named a Meffys award winner for "Best Mobile Connected
Device" by the Mobile Entertainment Forum (MEF). Announced in London on June
21, 2010, the seventh annual Meffys awards honor the most influential players
in the mobile entertainment industry from across the world.
"The Meffys awards provide insight into the wide range of innovative
products, services, applications and projects that are shaping and defining
the evolution of the mobile media industry today," said Rob Hadley, CMO,
Novatel Wireless. "It is an honor to be recognized in this distinguished
industry awards program and it further demonstrates our dedication to
delivering the most innovative mobile broadband and mobile media delivery
solutions in the market."
The MiFi platform is 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 the palm of their hand. Unlike old 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 is an intelligent, open platform
capable of hosting advanced software applications and flexible enough to
address the continued evolution of mobile broadband.
The MiFi product line has been recognized with a variety of top industry
awards in 2010 including the CES Innovation Award for Best Enabling
Technology, the GSM Global Mobile Award for Best Mobile Connected Device,
Mobile News Award for Most Innovative Product (non-Handset) and the Mobile
Merit Award for Gadgets/Handsets/Devices, non-connected devices.
