Novatel WWAN/WiFi card to bring embedded MiFi to Dell notebook?

Are Novatel planning to put a MiFi module inside Dell's Latitude E4300?  That's one interpretation of the company's recent FCC filing, which shows a dual-mode WiFi and WWAN module capable of concurrently using both wireless radios, and with antenna connections for the E-series notebook.

We've made no bones about how impressed we are with the MiFi "intelligent mobile hotspot" from Novatel Wireless, having played with both Verizon and Sprint's CDMA models.  If you've been tempted by a 3G hotspot of your own, but been put off by the $300 sticker price, then head over to Amazon where both the Verizon and Sprint models are down to just one cent with a new service plan.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 25 2009

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 25 2009

We've been singularly cellularly obsessed here at SlashGear over the past seven days, and it'll come as no surprise that the run-up to the iPhone 3G S has occupied much of our attention.  The new Apple smartphone may not look much different to its predecessor, but if our hands-on first impressions are anything to go by, Cupertino have done their best to make the user-experience as polished as the casing.  Still, it's not just shiny Apple hardware that's caught our eye this week; Novatel Wireless' GSM MiFi 2352 piqued our interest when we talked to the company themselves on Monday, and  then proceeded to impress us considerably in our full review.
