Dave’s Ipaq – Pocket Boingo @ Dave’s iPAQ
SANTA MONICA, Calif. – Extending simple Wi-Fi network access to a new range of devices, Boingo Wireless announced new Palm OS and Windows Mobile 2003 versions of Pocket Boingo, its Wi-Fi network access client for personal digital assistants.
Pocket Boingo for Windows Mobile 2003 is available today; a version supporting the Palm Tungsten C will be available later this summer. Versions of Pocket Boingo for other Palm OS-based devices are currently in development.
With Pocket Boingo, PDAs can be a more portable extension of a user’s connected world. It not only provides easier connections to private Wi-Fi networks at home and at the office, Pocket Boingo lets users tap into the Boingo Roaming System, a worldwide network of more than 8,500 hot spots under contract, for ultra-high-speed wireless Internet access. “Wi-Fi access expands the power and functionality of today’s PDAs dramatically, and Pocket Boingo makes that access super easy,” said Dave Hagan, Boingo president and COO.
Pocket Boingo for Palm and Windows Mobile sniffs out private, free and Boingo networks. It also includes advanced profile and security management for easy connections to preferred networks.
Windows Mobile 2003 users can also export network profiles from the Windows-based version of Boingo into their devices.
As with the existing Windows version of Boingo software (compatible with Windows XP, 2000, 98SE, and ME), Pocket Boingo is a free download from the Boingo website (www.boingo.com/download.html).
