Nokia will be kicking off a pilot global project which will see the recently announced Lumia 800 and 710 smartphones in action, but first things first – the Finnish phone company will be sponsoring free Wi-Fi connections in London. This new free Wi-Fi service will enable owners of the new Lumia 800 and 710 handsets to use the Internet right out of the box, never mind if you don’t even have a data plan to work on. This free Wi-Fi network will see action in London from today until the end of the year.
It takes but a single touch to choose the free Wi-Fi service on the Lumia’s settings page, where everything else will fall into place after that. Once done, the network is capable of recognizing you (and your device) each time you return to make the entire service a seamless experience. There will be 26 hotspots across the city in total, located in popular shopping areas like Oxford Street. Will this entice you to pick up a new Nokia Lumia when November 16th rolls around?
