For those of you who don't know what Mifi is, allow me to use the almighty C&P.

"Novatel Wireless last week announced it will release the MiFi, a portable wireless router that will deliver wireless 3G data network access to multiple users in a small area. Much the same size as a credit card, the sleek looking MiFi will let users select access to EVDO or HSPA high speed data networks.

This "cloud" of high-speed Internet connectivity that MiFi offers can be shared not only between users, but between devices such as laptops, cameras, gaming devices and multimedia players."
Thoughts anyone? :)

Sounds like they're just making 3G wireless. That's why I use Bluetooth. Does anyone really want to share a 3G connection with multiple users? Sounds like a niche product.

With 3G being expensive enough already (well it sure is here in Australia), I don't see why I'd want to share it around! Could be helpful in the right place, though.

i think the actual target for mifi is the ability for cities to offer broad scale wifi connections....sort of like wimax...but less powerful... i don't know that they're actual target is the end user....but i could be wrong on that....

there are a multitude of "3g" routers out there that you can get and just slap one of the PCMCIA cards from your carrier into....
