SAN DIEGO and DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, May 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Novatel Wireless, Inc. (NASDAQ:NVTL) , a provider of wireless broadband access solutions, today announced that Worldcom Technology LLC will distribute the Novatel Wireless MiFi® 2352 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot through all major retail outlets and channel partners in the Middle East and North Africa, including: United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
The MiFi platform represents the industry's first intelligent mobile hotspot; a new category of mobile broadband that lets users put their world of content, services and connectivity in the palm of their hand.

For its innovative design and engineering, the MiFi Intelligent Mobile Hotspot was named the "Best Mobile Connected Device" in the GSMA Global Mobile Awards, among the many other honors garnered since its launch.
"As wireless broadband networks become ubiquitous throughout the Middle East and North Africa, mobile users will turn to value-added distributors like Worldcom Technology for reliable, ultra high-speed wireless Internet solutions," said Rob Hadley, CMO, Novatel Wireless. "The launch of the MiFi 2352 will help meet the growing demand for innovative and easy to use mobile broadband connectivity solutions for both business and casual users. We look forward to working with Worldcom Technology to provide customers with the most advanced mobility solutions available."
