iPass Win Mobile iPhone

iPass on Monday announced that its iPassConnect and Mobile Office services now officially support Windows Mobile 6 phones. The addition lets owners of supporting smartphones with Wi-Fi access hotspots on both their individual and work accounts without first turning to a computer. Adding the support could be crucial for workers traveling abroad, who may either exit a 3G cellular coverage area or face roaming charges, the company says. Over international 100,000 hotspots already tap into iPass today and include those run by Hyatt, Hilton, and Marriott hotels as well as those run within McDonald's and Starbucks.


The Windows Mobile option is available today and costs $10 per month as part of the Connect service for unlimited access within North America. An international pass costs $15. iPass will also include support for Apple devices, including the iPhone and iPod touch, later this year; BlackBerry support is promised in a similar timeframe and should involve all modern BlackBerries.

The service already supports Symbian-based smartphones as well as Mac OS X Leopard and Windows 2000/XP/Vista systems.
