May 15, 2009 Version Wireless will introduce the much anticipated MiFi 2200 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot on May 17. The credit-card sized MiFi 2200 will allow customers to create a wireless access point with up to five Wi-Fi enabled devices such as notebooks, netbooks, cameras, gaming devices or portable media/MP3 players.

The Mi-Fi 2200

The Mi-Fi 2200 is small enough to fit in a pocket measuring 3.5” x 2.3” x 0.4” and weighs in at only 2.05 ounces. It has a range of features, combining integrated internal CDMA and Wi-Fi antennas, advanced security, authentication technologies and up to four hours of active battery use plus 40 hours of standby time (on a single charge with one device connected).

The MiFi 2200 will be available online and in Verizon Wireless Communications Stores for USD$99.99 after a USD$50 mail-in rebate with a new two-year customer agreement.

And just in - carrier Sprint today announced that its branded version of the MiFi 2200 will be available in the first week of June.
