A few new 4G mobile hotspots from Samsung and Novatel are reportedly on the way after being spotted on an internal Verizon Wireless rebate list.

The LTE-ready accessories were first unveiled at CES 2011 in January. Some of the details revealed then included connectivity with up to five Wi-Fi-enabled devices, and the Novatel MiFi 4510L is small enough to fit in a pocket. With CTIA Wireless going on in Orlando this week, we should (hopefully) be seeing more official news about these gadgets soon.

But for now, according to Phone Arena, Verizon is gearing up for the "imminent" launches of the 4510L as well as the Novatel USB551L and Samsung SCH-L11 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot. Each of these are also backwards compatible with 3G connections, and at least the Novatel models will compatible with Mac and Windows computers.

The rebates are listed as $50 each, but no word on actual price points just yet.
