Devicescape Software is working with Nokia to make its software available on selected Wi-Fi enabled Nokia devices. The Devicescape Connect software, now available via the Nokia Download! application makes Wi-Fi access effortless for users at home or while mobile.
Once set up, Devicescape enables automatic connections to Wi-Fi allowing users to quickly and easily access their favorite internet applications at homes and Wi-Fi hotspots worldwide. Devicescape eliminates the need to launch a browser to enter user names and passwords on your Nokia device. Your user name and password are entered just once and stored on a secure server and, after that, Devicescape enables you to connect to any supported network within range.
“The Devicescape solution is ideal for Nokia Nseries multimedia computer or Internet Tablet owners,” said said Dave Fraser, Chief Executive Officer of Devicescape. “These customers want fast access to the great internet services that Nokia devices enable including e-mail, VoIP, maps, music, video, or online games. Now, with Devicescape they can have automatic access to Wi-Fi, improving and expanding their experience with their favorite services.”
Nokia N95 multimedia computer owners in the U.K. and the U.S. can find Devicescape under “Easy WiFi” in the Download! application on their device. Nokia Internet Tablet owners can also find an optimized version of Devicescape in the Nokia Tableteer Folder.
Devicescape works around the world by supporting more than 300 public networks including the largest carriers in the world such as T-Mobile, British Telecom, EarthLink and municipal and free networks too. In addition, consumers can expand their Wi-Fi coverage by adding more hotspots and networks, including their home network, by visiting Devicescape’s web site at devicescape.com. There they can also selectively and securely share their home and other personal networks with friends and family.
Devicescape is free for users. In addition to the Nokia N95 and the Nokia Internet Tablet OS, Devicescape supports Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows XP and Windows Vista, Windows Mobile Smartphones, with other devices planned. Nokia and Devicescape plan to roll out this application for more devices and more countries in the near future.
