T-Mobile USA introduced a free software that makes locating and using its 4,200 HotSpot locations simpler and more convenient. The company says that the T-Mobile Connection Manager software enables customers to automatically detect and logon to the T-Mobile HotSpot network, and is the only software program that provides the most up-to-date location information for all T-Mobile HotSpots.
The Connection Manager software is available to download for free at the company's web site. Starting in April, free CD versions of the software will also be available at T-Mobile retail stores and participating T-Mobile HotSpot locations.
In addition, the T-Mobile Connection Manager has a built-in directory of T-Mobile HotSpot locations, so busy customers can find the Wi-Fi enabled venue closest to their next destination -- whether it's the nearest Starbucks first thing in the morning; an airport club or lounge during a layover; or a Kinko's branch to put the final touches on a presentation.
Currently there are versions for Windows 2000/XP and Windows 98. The company promisses versions for Windows Mobile Pocket PC, Palm and Mac OS soon.
