Sprint releases MiFi 3G/4G hotspots

The Novatel MiFi 3G/4G from Sprint
On Tuesday, Sprint announced that it’s first 4G hotspot will hit stores on April 17.

The Novatel MiFi is about the size of a credit card and reportedly has download speeds 10 times faster than its 3G predecessor. The company promises a four-hour battery life with 60 hours of standby time.

The gadget will cost $79.99, according to Sprint, and will require a two-year contract and a data plan. Sprint’s data plans start at $49.99 per month.

As the name indicates, the hot spot can be used on both Sprint’s 3G and 4G networks.
