BASKING RIDGE, NJ — Father’s Day is June 21 and if you’re still trying to find the right gift for Dad, Verizon Wireless has a number of cool gadgets from which to choose, including Mobile Broadband devices and Network Extender. These devices can help him stay connected – whether on a weekend getaway with Mom or out fishing with buddies.

The following Mobile Broadband devices take advantage of the nation’s largest and most reliable 3G network:

  • MiFi™ 2200 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot – Dad can create his personal Wi-Fi hotspot with the MiFi 2200 and connect to a notebook, camera and even an MP3 player. He can also share the connection with family and friends since the MiFi 2200 supports up to five Wi-Fi-enabled devices.
  • HP Mini 1151NR – Eliminate the need for Dad to always lug his laptop with him. The lightweight HP Mini 1151NR from Verizon Wireless allows him to access the Internet and e-mail and browse the Web in a laptop-style package that weighs less than 2.5 pounds.
  • Data Cards and USB Modems – Dad can connect to the network wherever he goes with several data cards and USB modems, including the USB760 USB Modem.

Extending the Network
If the family is planning a summer getaway, Dad can pack the Verizon Wireless Network Extender to enhance the wireless signal for calling, texting and sending picture messages. Ideal for any destination with a structural barrier (e.g. basement, remote and mountainous regions), Network Extender can improve network access in areas where Verizon Wireless offers service, provided there is a compatible broadband Internet connection.

Pricing
The MiFi 2200, HP Mini 1151NR and the USB760 USB Modem are $99.99, $199.99 and $49.99 respectively after a $50 mail-in rebate and a new two-year customer agreement. Customers can select from two Mobile Broadband price plans – $39.99 monthly access for 250 MB monthly allowance or $59.99 monthly access for 5 GB monthly allowance. Network Extender is available for $249.99 plus local taxes. There are no monthly access charges for using Network Extender.
