Free Wi-Fi in New York parks from Nokia

Soon you’ll be able to sit in the park in New York and surf the web on a free Wi-Fi network thanks to Nokia. The company has been chosen to be the primary provider of the mobile services for the city. The network will cover 10 major parks in New York, including Central Park, Union Square Park, and Corona Flushing Meadows. WiFi Salon, a New York-based company that owns the exclusive concession rights for the parks, will own and manage the network infrastructure.

Nokia views the project as a great way to showcase their capabilities and to pilot new services. They will be working with as yet unidentified media partners to provide complimentary mobile versions of content to devices in the park. The company points out that devices like the N80, N91 or the 770 internet tablet will be ideal for browsing in the park, though you can obviously use any other device or laptop as well.
