Nokia N95
Steps on how to make your Nokia N95 a hotspot:

Robert Scoble made a post about Joiku turns Nokia N95 into Wifi hotspot and that caught my eyes because of my love to nokia and leaning new features this phone has. So what is a hotspot? a hot spot (or hotspot) is a wireless LAN (local area network) node that provides Internet connection and virtual private network (VPN) access from a given location. For example, a business traveller with a laptop equipped for Wi-Fi can look up a local hot spot, contact it, and get connected through its network to reach the Internet and their own company remotely with a secure connection. Increasingly, public places, such as airports, hotels, and coffee shops are providing free wireless access for customers.

JoikuSpot a free mobile software solution that turns a Nokia Smaprtphones to a WLAN HotSpot.
JoikuSpot enables S60 Smartphone to share it’s 3G internet connection wirelessly over WLAN with any compatible WLAN device such as laptop or other Smartphone like Apple iPhone. More than one device can connect to JoikuSpot in parallel and seamlessly share the same 3G internet connection. JoikuSpot acts an internet gateway to external WLAN devices.

Now, I love to lay my hands on of Nokia’s new N-series cellphones which you can read more about here.

Hope you guys find this interesting because I did 🙂

    I agree, that phone is rather appealing to the eye. Sounds like there are a lot of useful features that come with it.

    I do not think any of Nokia N-series available in Canada but you can get them from overseas and buy a SIM card from rogers as long the phone match the frequency we use in Canada.

    Thanks Z, that’s really too bad! It’d be too much of a hassle for me to buy it overseas, making sure its quad-band w/ 850 and then get a sim card. I’m super lazy when it comes to things like that, haha.

  5. Nice blog, i have added it to my favourites, greetings
