Novatel outs MiFi 3352 with MiFi OS

Novatel MiFi 3352 brings own web-based OS

Novatel today upgraded its MiFi routers with a next-generation model. The MiFi 3352 is the first mobile 3G router to have Novatel's own MiFi OS platform and lets users customize its functionality. A web-based portal lets users both install web widgets viewable from the router but to run native apps that take advantage of the local link, even for tablets.

Preinstalled widgets already include text messaging and geolocation-based search and weather.

The router itself connects at a peak 7.2Mbps on HSPA-based 3G networks and shares it with as many as five other devices. A microSDHC slot provides both immediate and shared storage up to 32GB. GPS provides location-based services.

Orange is the first carrier to offer the MiFi 3352 and, in the UK, charges a minimum of 49 ($79) for the router with a 15 ($24) contract plan that offers 1GB at any time, 1GB off-peak and unlimited BT Wi-Fi. Other carriers are likely to get the 3352 or related devices, although North America typically needs versions with native support for its 3G frequencies.
