Verizon Wireless has finally made available the MiFi 2200 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot that is pretty much similar to the Novatel unit it’s based on, featuring 802.11b/g and EV-DO Rev. A radios alongside the ability to share a 3G Verizon connection with a maximum of five Wi-Fi devices all at once. Battery life isn’t that impressive though with just four hours of active use, although you do get up to 40 hours of standby on a single charge. So far Verizon is offering a variety of data plans including a $40 monthly subscription for 250MB and 10 cents per MB overages, or $60 for 5GB and half the overages price. Folks who are heavy duty users can always pay the full price for the MiFi and benefit from a $15 24 hour “DayPass” for $15. The MiFi 2200 will be available this May 17th for $100 after a $50 mail-in rebate.
