AT&T on Thursday introduced its latest 4G LTE mobile hotspot, the MiFi Liberate. What a fitting name. The device is equipped with one feature we haven’t seen before: a 2.8-inch color touchscreen display that allows you to view your data usage, manage devices, change settings and more. Honestly, we’ve never seen a hotspot like it. The MiFi Liberate supports up to 10 different Wi-Fi enabled devices at once and offers 11 hours of use time.
AT&T said that the device will offer data connectivity in more than 200 countries around the globe. The MiFi Liberate also supports a microSD card that can be accessed from any device that’s connected to the hotspot via DLNA or Wi-Fi.
AT&T did not announce pricing or a release date yet, but we have a feeling you’ll be able to grab one of these before the holiday season.
