Novatel MiFi 4082 press image slips

A forum post late Wednesday provided the first look at the finished version of one of Novatel's first 4G routers, the MiFi 4082 for Sprint. The hybrid WiMAX and EVDO router spotted by SprintUsers veteran r0fl shows an at least superficially upscale design with a brushed metal effect and chrome trim. Its design still adopts the familiar pocketable shape but has extra indicators for signal strength and what may be the presence of 4G speed.

The 4082 is believed through earlier discoveries to be shipping by January 30 and could be unveiled at CES next week. Novatel is likely to have an LTE counterpart to the 4082 for Verizon and other carriers using the more widely adopted 4G standard, but significant details haven't emerged to date.
