MiFi adds DLNA streaming and NovaDrive

Novatel at the CTIA mobile expo has given the MiFi a functional boost by adding media sharing and backup features. The 3G-to-Wi-Fi router can now act as a DLNA server for content on an inserted microSDHC card and will play it to any app or device that recognizes the sharing format, including the PlayStation 3 as well as iPhones and iPods with apps such as PlugPlayer ($5, App Store). It will initially work only with the unlocked version of the MiFi 2372 but should reach other MiFi hotspots in the future.

All MiFi users will have access to the new backup service, NovaDrive. It provides an unlimited amount of online storage for users that they can access from most any device connected to the MiFi, including phones and media players. Files are given 256-bit encryption, and the router itself can be tracked if lost by using the 3G's positioning and Google Maps.

NovaDrive is active today and costs $50 for a year's worth of single-user, personal access. A $15 monthly service opens the door to sharing between an unlimited number of users. [media sharing via Laptop]

    MiFi streaming

    I like the thing that MiFi acts like an USB too and you can actually double your iPhone storage capacity. About the PlugPlayer here is the demo they presented at CTIO: http://www.thehdstandard.com/streaming-technology/mifi-adds-music-and-video-streaming/

    streaming

    Today there are many top most streaming sites providing video streaming facility. It is very helpful for the people fond of watching online videos as it saves time. The benefit of streaming is that there is no need to wait or download a file to play it. Instead, the media/content is sent in a continuous stream of data and it is directly played as it arrives.I use to search videos daily but now i am relieved.
