Novatel MiFi 4620L for Verizon priced and dated

Verizon ended a two-month wait since CES by pricing and dating one of its second-generation LTE hotspots. The Novatel MiFi 4620L, badged as a Verizon Jetpack, should be in stores April 12 for $50 for those signing up for a two-year data plan of at least $50 a month, albeit after a $50 rebate. The hotspot is its first real hotspot with world 3G and can switch to HSPA on international carriers when outside of the US. Like newer-generation Novatel hotspots, it has its own OLED display to provide basic access to settings and status without turning to another device.

Battery life hasn't been quoted so far. The hardware can share its connection with as many as 10 different devices at once.

We had the opportunity to see the Novatel-made Jetpack at CES, and while the OLED doesn't photograph well, it provides a useful way to check if the device is ready to go without having to start a notebook or visit a setup web page first. It may be the top pick for a hotspot on Verizon provided its battery life is comparable to the usual four hours or more.
