Sprint is launching the Novatel MiFi 2200 personal hotspot on its network. If you’re not familiar with this product that other carriers already use, it connects to Sprint’s 3G network and turns it into a local WiFi bubble of around 30 foot around you. It runs on battery and can last a theoretical 5 hours in active mode and 40 hours in standby mode. It is still a 3G wireless connection, so don’t expect multi Mbps speeds, but still, it’s convenient.
Sprint should have this out by early June. The price of the device is $100 (after a $50 rebate and a 2-yr plan). Sprint has two monthly plans that go for $60/mo (data only) or $150/mo “simple everything plan” (voice+data). don’t forget that there’s a monthly 5GB cap.
