WiFi network aggregator Boingo Wireless announced Boingo Mobile is now available on select Nokia devices. That means certain Nokia handsets and Internet tablets will automatically connect to Boingo's network worldwide WiFi hotspots for $7.95 per month. Owners of compatible Nokia WiFi-enabled devices, such as select Series 60-based smart phones and Linux-based Internet tablets, can download and install Boingo Mobile, which enables roaming access to a global collection of public hotspots. The Boingo software identifies Boingo-enabled hotspots and automatically authenticates users with their Boingo account.
The deal is another example of Nokia's desire to expand beyond mobile devices and platforms to embrace a range of web services.
