TapRoot offers Windows Mobile, Symbian Series 60 option for sharing cell data over Wi-Fi: TapRoot's software lets you turn a cell phone with a data connection into a Wi-Fi hotspot. The free demo version allows a single user to connect at a time over Wi-Fi; a full-feature version is in the works that they'd resell to carriers (they hope). No consumer plans are sold. This is the second phone-as-hotspot package to appear this year. JoikuSpot was released last month, but works just with Nokia Symbian phones.
Greyhound offers Wi-Fi on northeastern corridor buses: The aging bus company gets modern with its BoltBus service, which launches March 26 between Manhattan and Washington, D.C., with promotional $1 tickets each way (purchased online, in advance). The buses will have a little more legroom along with the free cellular-network-backed Wi-Fi. The bus company told Wi-Fi Planet that the Internet access wouldn't be perfect--"may be very slow or spotty"--an admirable bit of truthfulness, but there are 110-volt outlets on board that makes for entertaining diversions (like watching DVDs) between good connectivity.
