Joikusoft, a mobile software development firm, has announced a collaboration with Fon, a Wi-Fi community. Fon and Joikusoft are releasing an exclusive version of Joikusoft’s mobile hotspot solution, named FonSpot, which turns a mobile phone into a Wi-Fi HotSpot, enabling any laptop, iPod Touch, internet tablet or other Wi-Fi device to connect to the internet using any compatible mobile phone as a high speed internet gateway.
It is claimed that FonSpot with Wi-Fi will effectively replace Bluetooth, cable and USB dongles to access the internet using mobile phones and 3G connectivity. The FonSpot is a fully secure mobile internet HotSpot solution, and makes use of the maximum security offered by the underlying Symbian OS platform, according to the companies.
Tom Ojala, chairman and founder of Joikusoft, said: Fon is a perfect companion to roll out wireless Wi-Fi access in mobile phones as Fon already has an established user base of hundreds of thousands of physical Fon Wi-Fi base-stations. Fon users will now enjoy even broader access to internet wherever they are, literally carrying internet in their pocket.
