Virgin Mobile launches the MiFi 2200CNET's Natali Del Conte takes a look at Virgin Mobile's MiFi 2200 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot, which allows any Wi-Fi device to connect to Sprint's 3G network through a prepaid subscription.
>> Hi, I'm Natali Del Conte with CNET, and we're here and we are taking a look at the new Virgin Mobile MiFi 2200. This is the second Virgin of their MiFi card, and it's made with Novatel wireless. They're calling it the first prepaid card on the market. So this is a Mobile hotspot. You take it around with you and you can get up to 5 devices online just through this one device. Plans start at $10 and then go up from there. It's not a ton of data, but for light emailing or something like that. This will get you on Sprint's network. It's an MVNO running on the Sprint 3G network, and it will keep track of how much data you're using so that you know when you're out and you need to just top it right back up again. The device itself costs $150, but since it's a prepaid plan, you don't have to sign a contract or give it your credit card number. This is available now, and once again it's the Virgin Mobile MiFi 2200. In New York, I'm Natali Del Conte with CNET.com.
