NTT Communications just announced the launch of their new “HOTSPOT connect” service offering free connectivity to specific Internet services via their HOTSPOT WLAN network in Japan. The first offering – dubbed “HOTSPOT connect x Eye-Fi” – will allow users to upload photos and videos from cameras, camcorders and other portable devices that are equipped with an Eye-Fi SD memory card which has built-in Wi-Fi capability. The HOTSPOT connect platform is openly available to anyone, including non-subscribers to HOTSPOT, normally a paid service.
HOTSPOT connect is expected to create business opportunities for online service providers, who will use the service to attract the increasing number of people carrying WLAN-compatible devices, such as laptops, iPod touch, iPhone 3G, digital cameras, handheld game consoles and netbooks. HOTSPOT connect x Eye-Fi will be demonstrated during the Interop TOKYO 2009 trade show at Makuhari Messe near Tokyo between June 10th and 12th.
