Saw this release: http://investor.novatelwireless.com/releasedetail.... and I was wondering what it means about the mobile hotspot market that it took Novatel 2 years to sell as many of the various models of MiFi as Apple can sell new iPhones on a launch weekend
Does anyone have any comparison for this device versus the original Overdrive? I currently have the Sierra Overdrive and am not overly satisfied with it. Comcast is selling the mifi under their xfinity2go service and it's a bit cheaper - but is the device better?
I'm into my first day of testing. In my office my 4g signal was weak on my samsung but I was still getting about 4-6 mbps down. My novatel mifi is showing no LTE signal and 1.5mbps download.
The reason I ask is that I would like to buy an Android tablet. Some of the WiFi only tablets are interesting, but may not have GPS. I would like to have location services available to my tablet. If the MiFi can provide location services, then I can easily write some code to fetch the location info and provide it to Android.
Sadly, the building I work in kills 3G and there is no reliable Wifi near my floor. I tried a MiFi that a co-worker had the other day and it worked beautifully for me. So, while I am thinking about getting one I'm wondering if this would be a worthwhile investment or are there better options for me?
Since I got my device in August I can't charge my Mifi with the supplied charger. Several repair attempts failed. http://blog.perstechlife.com/2009/10/22/mifi-2352-... As I now have found more cases with the problem there might be a larger problem. Anybody else with charging problem on the MiFi 2352? PersTechLife
Yesterday, my MiFi started blinking red. I tried to charge it, but the power LED just turned red. Now it doesn't work at all - if I turn it on, the LED just turns solid red. The status light never turns on at all. When I connect it via USB, the VZAccess software doesn't detect it. I've seen a few other reports of this, and they all say that Verizon replaced the device because it's a hardware problem. I'm calling Verizon today, but if anyone knows of a way to fix this with...
Has anyone been able to find a PDF manual for this device? I prefer that to paper manuals since I can keep the PDF with me on my netbook whenever I need it. I perused the Novatel and Verizon sites, but the most I could find were the 1-2 page data sheets.
