Wi-Fi hotspot with the N900 and JoikuSpot (Coming soon)

19 January 2010Entry by

Many times we have pointed out the Nokia’s N900 capacity to have the full internet right at the palm of your hand and the amazing experience that this gorgeous device provides. However, it seems that there would be a new application coming soon that would take advantage of it and would take it to the limit.

The application is called JoikuSpot and is already known for other devices such as Nokia’s Symbian devices. Its particularity is that it turns the Nokia N900 into a Wi-Fi hotspot making it possible for other devices such as laptops to connect to the Nokia N900 over Wi-Fi in order to connect to Internet through the Nokia’s N900 3G connections. So with this application you not only have full internet on your Nokia N900, but also you could share it with other devices. Pretty cool isn’t it?

While is already possible to use the Nokia N900 or any mobile phone with internet connection as a cellular modem only for a single device through a USB or Bluetooth connection between devices, JoikuSpot makes the difference as it able this option for more than one device at the time. However, it’s important to consider that using JoikuSpot would use much more battery than using the USB or Bluetooth option.

The news published on the Joikusoft Facebook page was: “For those lucky ones already having Nokia N900 we have very good news. JoikuSpot for Maemo OS will be published soon. The new version will include improved UI showing the actual throughput speed plus much more. Stay tuned.
