Devicescape's Easy WiFi Network Now Available on Android and Nokia Phones

Find, Connect and Access Hundreds of Thousands of Free WiFi Hotspots Globally With the Easy WiFi Network

SAN BRUNO, CA--(Marketwire - November 12, 2009) - Devicescape today announced that the Easy WiFi Network (www.easywifi.com) -- providing first-ever free access to the world's largest WiFi network -- is now available for Android and Nokia phones. With Devicescape's Easy WiFi Network, Android and Nokia can offer its smartphone customers access to free WiFi anywhere in the world with no strings attached. The Easy WiFi Network allows people to move beyond traditional WiFi restrictions such as paid hotspots, hotel or airport packages to now access WiFi globally for free.

Android and Nokia smartphone customers can download their Easy WiFi Network from Android Market, Ovi by Nokia or www.easywifi.com. The Easy WiFi Network delivers a high-quality hotspot network, which combines global WiFi access with an easy-to-use hotspot map finder. Easy WiFi allows Android and Nokia smartphone users to find and connect to hundreds of thousands of hotspots all over the world and is monitored 24/7 to guarantee optimal WiFi connection performance.

"Nokia is the number one phone manufacturer in the world and Android continues to gain market share. In fact, Gartner predicts that Android phones will represent fourteen percent of the global smartphone market by 2012," said Dave Fraser, CEO of Devicescape. "Devicescape is committed to delivering great WiFi products to device manufacturers, ranging from popular smartphones -- such as Android and Nokia -- to gaming devices by Nintendo or Sony. For the first time ever, device manufacturers can deliver an end product with built-in WiFi and a global WiFi service plan."

Easy WiFi Network members can "personalize" their network access by easily tapping into other WiFi network accounts. These additional networks might include those that are bundled with consumers' cellular or home service, commercial accounts or communities they belong to such as university campuses. This personalization allows users to extend their map-view to include Easy WiFi hotspots with all of their other accounts. When a user has personalized their account, the map finder will be updated to include all of their hotspots, allowing them to be logged-in automatically, everywhere.

Pricing and Availability

The Easy WiFi Network is free. To become an Easy WiFi Network member, visit www.easywifi.com. You can also download it from the Apple App Store, Android Market or Ovi by Nokia.
