After a few months since the official announcement at CES 2011, Verizon's new MiFi 4510L 4G mobile hotspot is now ready to connect.

Developed in partnership with Novatel, this LTE mobile broadband hotspot, along with a few other MiFi devices, popped back up on the radar in March when a rebate list leaked out.

Pricing wasn't mentioned then, but it has been now. The 4510L retails for $99.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and with a two-year service agreement. That consists of a 4G Mobile Broadband plan, which starts at $50 per month for 5GB of data.

That does sound like quite a bit of cash, but the 4510L can provide wireless access for up to five Wi-Fi-enabled devices simultaneously. Users can expect download speeds up to 12Mbps and upload speeds up to 5Mbps when on a 4G network. The device is backwards compatible with Verizon's 3G network, but obviously speeds will be slower.
