- 27 September, 2012 16:45
AT&T will exclusively offer the first touchscreen-enabled mobile hotspot, the new MiFi Liberate, for use with its emerging LTE network, the carrier announced Thursday. Made by Novatel Wireless, the MiFi Liberate device comes with a 2.8-in. color touchscreen display. Touch commands help users connect to up to 10 Wi-Fi devices, view data usage and change network and device settings.
The device can be used on AT&T's LTE network, now in more than 70 cities, as well as its much more broadly available HSPA+ and 3G networks, a spokeswoman said.
The device also allows wireless connections in 200 different countries.
AT&T didn't release the price or when it will be available, and a spokeswoman said it will go on sale in "the coming months."
Other MiFi Liberate specs were not available.
