Joikusoft and FON unveil Wi-Fi HotSpot software for Symbian smartphones
Joikusoft has announced a collaboration with WiFi community FON. The companies are releasing an exclusive version of Joikusoft's mobile hotspot solution, named FonSpot.

FonSpot 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 secure high speed Internet gateway.

The companies says 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. The users have full control over who will be able to access their FonSpot's wireless internet connection.

FonSpot is an exclusive offering for members of the FON community. Foneros will be able to share their mobile Internet connection with up to 5 friends, who can connect to their FonSpot. It will be made commercially available for Foneros during 3Q 2008.

According to the Joikusoft Chairman and Founder Mr. Tom Ojala "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."

Joikusoft already provide two software products that allow users to create a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot and share that connection with friends - 20322 Joikuspot Premium and
16801 Joikuspot Light. The company says user base of JoikuSpot exceeded 300.000 in June 2008 and grows exponentially.
