MONTRÉAL, Canada – Bell, at the end of November 2009, announced the launch of the award winning MiFi 2372 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot from Novatel Wireless. The MiFi 2372 operates on Bell's new HSPA network and offers simultaneous Wi-Fi connectivity for up to five devices or users.

The MiFi 2372 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot from Novatel Wireless is the only mobile Internet device, because of its WiFi capability, that also can be used by Linux users, such as those that like their Netbooks on one or the other versions of that operating system. Other mobile Internet via dongles cannot be used – so far – on Linux system. Believe me, I have tried.

"Bell Mobility continues to introduce innovative wireless devices that increase productivity by delivering fast and reliable mobile Internet access,” said Adel Bazerghi, Senior Vice President of Products at Bell Mobility. "We're excited to be the first wireless provider to introduce Canadians to the Novatel Wireless MiFi 2372 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot and the convenience of portable Wi-Fi access."

"We're pleased to partner with Bell Mobility to launch the first commercial MiFi 2372 platform in North America," said Rob Hadley, chief marketing officer for Novatel Wireless. “With the MiFi 2372 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot, Bell Mobility is providing its clients with unrivaled high speed Internet access virtually anywhere they work or play."

The MiFi Mobile Intelligent Hotspot platform has won several awards in 2009, including the CTIA Hot for the Holidays Award and the Plus X Award in Technology for Innovation & Ease of Use, and was ranked #2 on the list of BestTravel Gadgets of 2009 by Time Magazine.

Compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems, the MiFi 2372 delivers download speeds up to 7.2 megabits per second with enhanced performance for simultaneous uploads/downloads and large file transfers. It supports up to five simultaneous users located within 30 feet of the device.

Compact and simple to use, the MiFi 2372 also offers optimized functionality for video streaming and online gaming and includes a microSD slot for expandable memory of up to 16 gigabytes.
