    The Novatel Wireless U727 stores documents, presentations, multimedia
files and more. With dimensions of 70 mm by 25 mm, it is only slightly longer

Vista(TM) and Macintosh(R) operating systems, the U727 integrates Mobile
Connect Basic software, allowing clients to easily install and configure their
connections and to review and manage their usage.

resources, but also the ability to store and transport important data on the
fly," said Peter Leparulo, CEO of Novatel Wireless." Based on extensive
feedback from enterprise customers worldwide, Novatel Wireless designed the
