BARCELONA, Spain -- February 24, 2013

Novatel Wireless, Inc. (Nasdaq: NVTL) today announced that its next-generation
MiFi^® 2 – the first mobile hotspot with a touchscreen display and the most
feature rich mobile hotspot in the market – will launch commercially with Bell
on Canada’s largest 4G LTE Network this March 2013.

MiFi 2 introduces an entirely new user interface based on a 2.8” multi-touch
interactive color display, letting users control the MiFi device with the
touch of a finger. It has a beautiful design, which features a minimalist
style and a vibrant color screen. MiFi 2 brings a new set of features and
services which redefines how users interact and use their mobile hotspots. The
touch-screen display drives a better, more intuitive connection between
devices and people. An accelerometer ensures that users can hold the device
however they like and the touchscreen display will adjust automatically. The
features and functionality of MiFi 2 are showcased by icons that allow users
to easily discover and interact with the capabilities of MiFi 2 for almost any
use case, such as data usage, on-board shared storage, the MiFi Media Center
and location based services. MiFi 2 can connect up to 10 Wi-Fi enabled devices
simultaneously and empowers users with up to 11 hours of usage time, even
while streaming live video.

MiFi 2 has already received numerous industry awards and Editors' Choice
selections as the most advanced and best-performing mobile hotspot available
with statements such as “The Best Mobile Hotspot I've Ever Used," by GIZMODO
and “takes mobile hotspots to the next level,” by PC Magazine.

“We are very excited with the upcoming launch of the MiFi 2 on Bell’s 4G LTE
network,” said Rob Hadley, CMO of Novatel Wireless. “The market feedback has
been incredible and we look forward to bringing Bell’s MiFi customers the
experience of an interactive color touchscreen, always-secure, always-reliable
connectivity with an amazing 11 hours of continuous use, and capabilities that
take the MiFi device well beyond pure connectivity.”

“Bell Mobility customers will be among the first in the world to enjoy
high-speed wireless broadband access with Novatel Wireless’ high-performance
MiFi 2 mobile hotspot,” said Adel Bazerghi, Senior Vice President of Products
at Bell Mobility. ”With access to Canada’s largest 4G LTE mobile network, Bell
customers using the advanced MiFi 2 will be able to move data across multiple
devices at speeds often exceeding that of a fixed wireline connection.”

The MiFi 2 will be available on Bell’s 4G LTE network in Canada in the coming
