Networking company TRENDnet have announced a new 150Mbps mobile wireless router, that - similar to a MiFi - allows you to create a wireless hotspot using 3G or 4G networks.  However, unlike the MiFi the TRENDnet TEW-655BR3G has no internal WWAN connection of its own, and instead relies on a USB 3G or 4G modem.  The company claims that no software or drivers are required, it's simply a case of slotting in your modem and sharing it with multiple WiFi clients.
