Verizon Jetpack Mobile Hotspot MiFi 4620L

Who makes it: Novatel Wireless

What it costs: $50 when purchased online with two-year data contract

Why we like it: Run your Wi-Fi-only iPads, Kindle Fires and Nooks on the go. The Jetpack connects them to Verizon's wicked-fast 4G LTE network, which has far broader coverage than either AT&T or Sprint. If you can tolerate the extra expense, this little dynamo is far more useful than it has any right to be.
