Boingo Wireless, the Wi-Fi industry’s leading provider of software and services worldwide, has announced an agreement with Nintendo of America that provides Wi-Fi access to Nintendo 3DS owners via 42 of Boingo’s North American airports.
The agreement enables Nintendo 3DS owners to stay connected when traveling through one of Boingo’s managed and operated airport networks including Chicago O’Hare, New York JFK and Houston George Bush Intercontinental airports.
Nintendo 3DS users who bring their devices with them on their travel will be automatically connected for free to participating Boingo hotspots.
Nintendo Zone will become available at participating Boingo hotspots with the next Nintendo 3DS system update, available December 8th, which will offer users a range of new features and enhancements.
The Wi-Fi access is available at no additional cost to Nintendo 3DS users.
The Nintendo 3DS system, which offers game play featuring real 3D graphics without the need for special glasses, includes the SpotPass feature, which when enabled, allows the system to detect wireless hotspots or wireless LAN access points and obtain information, game data, free software, videos and more even when the system is in Sleep Mode.
The facility now available in the US only is expected to hit other places by the end of next year with the launch of Nintendo’s new products.
Isn’t that something you were looking forward to?
