No it’s not an actual JetPack, although that would make CES 2012 a whole more interesting especially if 50 Cent demo’d it. It is a mobile hotspot by Novatel and Verizon. By creating a personal cloud, it is able to share high-speed 4G LTE and 3G Mobile Broadband Internet connectivity with up to 10 Wi-Fi-enabled devices simultaneously. Latest security requirements are completely covered in compliance with the strictest corporate VPNs, including VPN pass-through and NAT firewall. It now includes an interactive OLED display, allowing customers to navigate menu options, check security settings, monitor battery life, as well as manage connected devices at any given time.
