Boingo wireless software for Pocket PC
Posted on 15-Jul-2003 11:02 | Tags Filed under: News



Boingo Wireless announced the availability of a beta version of Pocket Boingo Software for Windows Mobile 2003. The free application is an updated version of the Pocket PC for 2002 software released last November.

Pocket Boingo gives users simple point-and-click access to ultra-high-speed Wi-Fi networks in more than 1,300 Boingo hot spot locations in U.S., as well as Wi-Fi signal sniffing and network profile management for personal networks at home or in the office.

"Microsoft's latest update to the Pocket PC operating system adds great Wi-Fi underpinnings to build on," said Dave Hagan, president of Boingo Wireless. "Pocket Boingo is faster, more reliable and even cooler on Windows Mobile."

"With Windows Mobile software, Microsoft builds upon its commitment to wirelessly connecting mobile users to people, information and entertainment," said Juha Christensen, corporate vice president of the Mobile Devices Division at Microsoft. "I am thrilled that Boingo Wireless will empower its customers to take advantage of the advanced wireless capabilities of Windows Mobile software and bring mobile computing to more customers."

Pocket Boingo for 2003 includes all of the Boingo members' favorite features. Wi-Fi signal sniffing shows users available networks. Profile management helps users get connected more easily by creating configuration settings for known networks and prioritizing them to speed connections. And integrated Boingo Wireless service functionality gives the user point-and-click access to thousands of Boingo hot spot locations. Users can also export network profiles from the Windows-based version of Boingo and import them into Pocket Boingo.

Pocket Boingo 2K3 is compatible with the most popular Wi-Fi enabled PDAs running Windows Mobile 2003, such as the iPaq 5550 and the Toshiba e750. It is also compatible with other PDAs using ARM processors and Wi-Fi cards that have NDIS 5.1 compliant drivers, most notably the iPaq 3600, 3700, 3800, 3900 devices with the PC card or CF card expansion pack and a compatible Wi-Fi card.
