Mobile Hotspot Devices Are Starting to Add DLNA Media Server Functionality

Looks like the need for media server duties are extending outside of the home with all our portable gadgets. As such, Novatel Wireless has decided to add DLNA server capabilities to its popular MiFi 2372 device, which includes a microSDHC slot for up to 32GB of storage. Yes, that’s small compared to your typical home server, but it will probably get the job done when you want to provide entertainment (i.e. music, photos, and videos), in addition to connectivity, to your family or clients while on-the-go. According to BGR, the free firmware update is available now for the AT&T MiFi 2372 and, surprisingly, it takes up little extra juice when doubling as a server in their tests.
