It was CES 2012 when Verizon announced its Jetpack mobile hotspot which was developed by ZTE to give Verizon customers 4G LTE access wherever they went in the U.S. The Jetpack came with an OLED screen and an interactive keypad to help manage connections as well as view data usage alerts. It looks as though Verizon has announced the successor to the Jetpack, called the Jetpack 4G Mobile Hotspot MiFi 5510L.
The original Jetpack already offered a 4G LTE connection for your data-hungry devices, which is also being offered with the Jetpack 4G. One of the first things you’ll notice is the change in the Jetpack 4G’s design as it’s more hockey-puck shaped than the original Jetpack. Just like the Jetpack, the Jetpack 4G will allow for up to ten mobile devices to connect to it via Wi-Fi.
The Jetpack 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot MiFi 510L will be made available for $19.99 on January 31.
