Is that a router in your pocket?
Or are you just happy to see me?
Once upon a time, in a land far away, I used an OQO Model 01+ and Motorola E815 connected via Bluetooth. I hacked the phone and tethered the computer to Verizon’s EVDO network. Every now and then, I’d share the 3G connection over WiFi, turning the computer into a router, and allowing other devices with WiFi around me to access the cloud – all this while walking down the street or driving down the freeway…
But here’s the cool part: the entire setup fit easily, without wires, in the many pockets of my trusty cutoff cargo pants!
The setup evolved over time. I replaced the phone with an LG CU500 on Cingular’s HSDPA network (now AT&T). Then I replaced the computer with an OQO Model 02, which I promptly modded for HSDPA (built-in).
And then, having narrowed things down to a single device, I was rocking a router in my pocket – I was ready for the mobile revolution :)
Eventually, I ended up with a Nokia N95-3 featuring both 3G and WiFi and I started thinking… Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a Symbian application that turned the device into a router in my pocket? Wouldn’t it be great?
Well now you can have your cake an eat it too – you too can be packing a router in your pocket! Say hello to JoikuSpot for Symbian, WMWifiRouter for Windows Mobile, and Cradlepoint for other devices.
I’ve been playing with JoikuSpot on my N95-3 and it’s working like a charm.

Great evolutionary post. And yeah, I totally ripped your title! Subscribed – so next time it happens I’ll have no excuse… ;)
Have you gotten joikuspot to work with the eee , I couldn’t get it to work with my eee 900
For some reason, I thought you had a Nokia N810 or N800… if you do, can you also post what things you had to do to make your NIT work with Jaikuspot Light (and/or Premium, for that matter)? Proxy settings, things you had to do for OpenSSH options, etc.
