Nokia N800 gets municipal Wi-Fi for free

Nokia N800 Muni Wi-Fi

Nokia's N800 Internet tablet will get easy roaming on Earthlink's municipal hotspots, the two companies announced today. Under a special agreement, an update to the wireless handheld will let any of its owners sign up for an account in US cities that offer public Internet access and connect at high speed; Earthlink estimates downstream speeds of 3Mbps and uploads as quick as 1Mbps. Access is unrestricted and includes the browsing, media streaming, and video calling possible with the Nokia device.

No added charges apply to using the N800 on the municipal network, though costs for accessing the public connections can vary depending on the region. Networks are currently in place for New Orleans to help its rebuilding efforts but have also gone live for Anaheim and Milpitas in California, Corpus Christi in Texas, and Philadelphia in Pennsylvania.
