Novatel Wireless' MiFi 2352 is the third of the company's "Intelligent Mobile Hotspots" that we've unboxed here on SlashGear, but unlike Verizon's and Sprint's the 2352 is a GSM/UMTS device rather than EVDO Rev.A.  Launching today on Telefonica Espana [pdf link], the MiFi 2352 features 7.2Mbps HSDPA and 5.76Mbps HSUPA, sharing that connection out for up to five WiFi b/g clients.  We caught up with Novatel in London today, to find out what else makes the MiFi 2352 special; you can also see the first video unboxing of the portable 3G router after the cut.
