CAT Launches Novatel Wireless MiFi 2200 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot in Thailand

Leading Mobile Operator First in Asia to Launch EVDO MiFi 2200

SAN DIEGO AND BANGKOK – February 2010 – Novatel Wireless, Inc. (Nasdaq: NVTL), a provider of wireless broadband access solutions, today announced that CAT, the only CDMA operator in Thailand, is launching the Novatel Wireless' MiFi 2220 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot.

The MiFi platform represents 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 their pocket. Unlike existing 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. For its innovative design and engineering, the MiFi Intelligent Mobile Hotspot was awarded the “Best of Innovations” award winner in the "Enabling Technologies" category at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2010 in Las Vegas, among many other awards.

“As the only CDMA operator in Thailand, CAT has the established customer base and expertise to meet increasing demand for innovative and easy to use mobile connectivity solutions for both business and casual use,” said Rob Hadley, CMO, Novatel Wireless. “With the MiFi Intelligent Mobile Hotspot 2200, CAT is providing its customers with unrivaled high speed Internet access for their wireless devices virtually anywhere they want to go.”

“CAT is dedicated to delivering the industry's most cutting edge solutions to users across Thailand,² said Mr. Preecha Chindamai, Senior Executive Vice President, CAT. “We are delighted to be the first operator in Asia to deliver the unprecedented functionality and access of Novatel's MiFi 2200.”
The MiFi 2200 device will be available through CAT at the beginning of
February 2010.
