Fon, the world’s largest Wi-Fi community, has joined forces with Joikusoft to come out with an exclusive version of JoikuSpot which will be named FonSpot. Here’s an excerpt from the announcement:

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.

The whole ideology of the Fon community is to make WiFi access universal and free, and they believe that if you share your internet access with other Fon members (aptly called Foneros), then you shall be given the same privileges from other Foneros around the world. So, in this regard, JoikuSoft fits perfectly into their master plan as the software developer has already managed to come out with an application that’ll easily turn any 3G connection into a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot.

It’s good news for Foneros, but I don’t think this new union of sorts will bold well with all the telco companies concerned.
