And just like that Verizon has revamped its prepaid pricing structure. Starting tomorrow, May 1st, the carrier will be offering unlimited talk and text packaged with 1GB of data for $ 80 a month. The new offering will be available first with the Samsung Illusion, a disappointingly 3G handset, though, one that wont demand a two year commitment to Big Red. Verizon is also adding the Jetpack MiFi 4510L LTE mobile hotspot to its contract-free offerings for $ 130. Prepaid plans for the 4G wireless hotspot start at $ 15 for 250 MB a week, but quickly climb to $ 60 and $ 90 for 3GB and 10GB, respectively. For more info check out the PR after the break.

Verizon’s got some news for those of you looking for a travel-ready LTE hotspot. The carrier is set to sell the Novatel Jetpack 4G LTE MiFi 4620L on April 12th at a price of $ 49.99. Of course, you’ll need a two-year contract to get that price, which reflects a $ 50 mail-in rebate. Contracts start at 5GB a month for $ 50. The 4620L doesn’t take a drastic departure from recent MiFi designs, but it does add an OLED display that makes getting system info and navigating device options much easier. While the hotspot runs on Verizon’s LTE network, it’ll connect up to 10 Wi-Fi devices at 3G speeds in over 125 countries. We were pleased with the device’s performance when we saw it at CES, so if you’re in the market for a new hotspot (and a two-year…

Fruit Ninja may be best known as a multi-million selling mobile game where you get to slice oranges with a sword, but now it’s a successful Xbox 360 game, too. Halfbrick today revealed that Fruit Ninja Kinect sold 500,000 copies since being released last August, proving that the franchise has reach outside of the mobile space. It also announced that iOS hit Jetpack Joyride has been downloaded 14 million times, experiencing explosive growth since going free last October. Prior to the freemium switch, the game had been downloaded one million times. Since then numbers have skyrocketed by 13 million, showing how much a difference even $ 1 can make. And there’s more to come, with an update due to launch in the next month, described by…

Gallery: Verizon’s ZTE Jetpack hands-on
We’re no strangers to Novatel Wireless — their aircards have been saving us on a regular basis this week — and now they’ve swung by our part of the ShowStoppers stage to show off their new Jetpack mobile hotspot for Verizon.
The Verizon Jetpack sports an OLED display and support for Verizon’s 4G LTE network but perhaps more importantly, it also has full support for global roaming. Trying to surf the web in Venice? Go for it! Need a solid data connection outside the Louvre? Not a problem.
Of course, you’ll have to shell out quite a bit for that privilege, but hopefully you’ve got a corporate checkbook picking up that tab. No word yet on availability, but hopefully it arrives before summer rolls around and all you tourists start travelling en masse.
Ever wonder what a jetpack is good for, besides fulfilling dreams and fighting Nazis? Well, Martin wants you to know there are, in fact, practical applications for its $ 86,000 personal propulsion system. According to the aviation company everyone from emergency responders to search and rescue teams to military personnel could find a place for the dual-engine craft in their arsenal of tools. Sure, we could see how their ability to get in an out where the size of a helicopter or plane might be prohibitive would prove handy, but their high cost and limited carrying capacity make them a tough sell. That doesn’t mean we don’t enjoying seeing the (poorly) rendered vision of our future filled with jetpacks in the video after the break. Come to think of it, we could see this coming in handy for our CES coverage… excuse us, we need to make some phone calls.
This is a brief clip from the Fox 5 San Diego morning news (the same studio from this April Fools’ prank) of a guy opening the show with one of those water-powered jetpacks. Unfortunately, he opted to not take the training course prior to operation and ends up crashing into the dock. Theeeeeeeen the entire news studio laughs at him. Needless to say, Captain Woopsie Daisy won’t be getting his water wings pin anytime soon.
Hit the jump for the woopsie-daisy in action. Also, Kevin Jonas: when we get our hands on one of these things, you get to go first.
PopMech has bit of whimsy for your Friday afternoon: a man using a massive jetpack to shoot himself through space on skis.
The skier, Troy Hartman, initially wanted to drop out of an airplane and fly around with the jetpack on but instead of doing that he strapped it to his back and took a few moguls, burning his jacket in the process. Just goes to show that maybe we’re all sitting around in our offices too much.
Motorola Xoom rooted in two hours flat, sinister transforming exoskeleton jetpack returns in Verizon ad
What’s the first thing you’re going to do with your Motorola Xoom? If you’re Koush, the answer’s clear — install your very own ClockworkMod recovery image and ROM Manager, and grant the latter superuser permissions. That’s right, on the very day of release, the Motorola Xoom’s all but ready for custom builds of Android and all the joy they bring.
Meanwhile, Verizon’s decided to bring us the latter half of the abruptly cut Xoom TV ad, which actually differs significantly depending on whether or not Spanish is your primary language. Either way, it’s a fairly sordid affair, with no Iron Man feats of stratospheric skill to be found, merely a quick demonstration of gaming with the accelerometer and a few quick swipes through Honeycomb. You’ll still watch it if we tell you it’s after the break though, won’t you?
