Novatel Wireless MiFi 2200 getting first firmware update this week

MiFi2200_Hand This is shaping up to be a busy week in the technology world, with the big guys up in Redmond set to finally unleash their newest creation on Thursday. On a smaller scale, October 22nd is also a milestone day for those of us who have been using the Novatel Wireless MiFi 2200 over the past few months.

It seems that the diminutive 3G broadband router is getting its first firmware update on this same date, hopefully fixing a few of the bugs along the way. The key improvements include eliminating hibernate mode while on AC power, proper international roaming, and new Administration page options, just to name a few. 

It is unclear whether this upgrade is for both the Verizon MiFi and its silver-colored sibling from Sprint, but we at least know it will work on the latter, since one of the posted additions is the ability to force Sprint-only mode instead of allowing roaming.

UPDATE: Looks like Novatel couldn't wait until Thursday, the update is now available for both Verizon and Sprint versions via the firmware update utility in the Administration page.
