SAN DIEGO -- June 28, 2004 -- Novatel Wireless, Inc. (Nasdaq: NVTL), a leading provider of wireless broadband access solutions, today announced that it has extended an agreement with AT&T Wireless to offer the Freedom Box 200G Wireless Ruggedized Modem through mid 2005. Launched in January 2004, the Freedom Box 200G is an intelligent wireless data platform that is bundled with AT&T Wireless' General Packet Radio Services (GPRS) wireless data service and offered to telemetry customers and other integrators looking to migrate to the higher speed and reliability of the GPRS network.

The Freedom Box 200G provides telemetry integrators with a cost-effective device replacement for their current Cellular Digital Packet Data (CDPD) equipment or for new machine to machine applications. To date, the Freedom Box 200G solution has been deployed by the California Transit Authority and over 20 telemetry customers enabling a variety of vertical market applications including utilities monitoring, traffic measurement and control, environmental monitoring, transportation, and fixed asset tracking.

Ideal for telemetry, field service, utilities and public safety markets, the Freedom Box 200G allows integrators to reduce expenses, expedite information to field forces and streamline business processes by enabling real-time, two-way communication between corporate networks and remote assets at speeds up to 53.6 kbps.
