Nokia has joined forces with Kordia Metro Wi-Fi to offer free Wi-Fi for Nokia Nseries users at locations across New Zealand. The service delivers wireless internet access ‘hot-zones’ across target areas such as cafes, CBDs, university campuses and shopping precincts in urban areas all over New Zealand.
Nokia NZ Marketing Manager Lane Stephens believes that Nokia’s partnership with Kordia will be of real benefit to all Nseries users – no matter what they use the multi-functions of their handset for.
“What better way to show-off the functionality of the Nokia Nseries and Eseries devices than to allow consumers to browse the internet for free while on the move, or in a relaxed environment such as a café or bar within the hot-zones,” said Lane.
“We want consumers to feel comfortable in discovering what their Nseries device can do. So whether it is checking email, downloading music, sharing images or simply web-browsing, they can now surf for free in a Kordia Metro Wi-Fi zone,” he said.
Nokia will be providing free internet access for Nseries users from early March 2008 for a minimum period of six months.
This service is only available to compatible Nokia Wi-Fi enabled handsets purchased through authorised New Zealand retailers.
Nokia Nseries Wi-Fi enabled devices currently on the New Zealand market include the N93i, N81, N95 and N95 8GB. Nokia’s Eseries devices, which include the E61i, E65 and the E90, will also be able to take advantage of the free wireless internet access.
