Bell first with MiFi USB modem in Canada

As promised, Canadian wireless and cable provider Bell on Monday has began offering the Novatel Wireless MiFi 2372 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot. The device uses Bell's recently launched HSPA network and will let up to five users share a single 3G connection over Wi-Fi.

The announcement makes Bell the first to carry the MiFi 2372 in Canada. The device is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems and will allow for 7.2Mbps transfer speeds, which is fast enough for streaming video and some forms of online gaming. The MiFi also has a microSDHC memory card slot, letting it double as a thumb drive.

The Novatel router is available for $100 CAD ($94) on a three-year data contract or for $250 CAD ($235) without a contract.
