Novatel Wireless Ships its Three Millionth 4G LTE Device and Receives Top Industry Accolades for its MiFi 2

SAN DIEGO--()--Novatel Wireless, Inc. (Nasdaq: NVTL), a leading provider of mobile broadband solutions, today announced that it has shipped more than three million 4G LTE enabled mobile computing products since it first began shipping LTE products in January 2011. In addition to its mobile broadband market leadership, Novatel Wireless recently received two new LTE innovation awards and multiple Editors’ Choice accolades from tier-one publications for its new 4G LTE MiFi 2.

“We are pleased to celebrate our three millionth shipment of LTE enabled data-only mobile computing products and excited to be honored as the vendor providing continued innovation and the most advanced mobile broadband solutions in the market,” said Peter Leparulo, CEO of Novatel Wireless.

Recently, Novatel Wireless was selected as a winner in the Best LTE Device/Handset category of the 2012 Telecoms LTE North America Awards for the MiFi 4620L. Novatel Wireless was also recognized as a CES Innovations Honoree in the Computer Accessories category of the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)® 2013 Design and Engineering Award for its MiFi 2 device. The MiFi 2 was recently launched commercially by AT&T as the MiFi Liberate, and has already received numerous industry awards and Editors’ Choice selections as the most advanced and best-performing mobile hotspot available.

A recent review by GIZMODO, headlined “AT&T MiFi Liberate: The Best Mobile Hotspot I’ve Ever Used,” stated, “An AT&T LTE MiFi will change your life a little bit.” Highlighting the MiFi Liberate’s bright 2.8-inch color touch-screen display, it continued, “You normally use a computer to change a mobile hotspot’s settings. But this does it on the tiny screen, and it sets the Liberate apart from so much of the competition.” GIZMODO’s review added, “The best part [is] the battery life! This thing will go for days…”

Citing advanced feature functionality, ease of use and reliability, PC Magazine stated in its recent review that the MiFi Liberate “gets you fast 4G LTE data speeds for more than 10 hours on a single charge, plus loads of additional features.” It continued, “The MiFi Liberate for AT&T takes mobile hotspots to the next level. It’s the best hotspot on AT&T, and our Editors’ Choice.”

“We believe our innovative approach, leading design and superior performance are vital factors when serving the mobile broadband market and we’re thrilled to see the acknowledgement and amazing feedback from editors and the industry,” Mr. Leparulo continued.
