Verizon MiFi 2200 Wi-Fi hotspot hands-on and unboxing

We just got our hands on the review unit of the MiFi 2200 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot today from Verizon and Novatel Wireless and we were eager to capture the unboxing for you. This device weighs next to nothing and it's super easy to take with you anywhere. It's meant to help you make a Wi-Fi connection anywhere you want that can be completely secure and reliable. Up to 5 connections can be shared at one time. This includes users or devices like cameras, gaming consoles or netbooks.
