Nintendo of America has announced a partnership with Wi-Fi service provider Boingo, which means that 42 North American airports now offer free hotspots for the Nintendo 3DS handheld.
Boingo hotspots also offer a new Nintendo Zone, complete with coupons and promotional services.
There are now more than 29.000 locations that allow users of the new device to use Wi-Fi for free.
Colby Goff, the senior vice president of strategy and business development for Boingo Wireless, stated, “With the holiday season approaching, more leisure travelers and families with children will fill our airports and have access to our hotspots. Our state-of-the-art networks will provide Nintendo 3DS users with seamless connectivity and fast, reliable service to help them make the most of their travel downtime.”
Zach Fountain, the director of strategic partnerships at Nintendo of America, added, “Nintendo 3DS is our most connected device ever, and this agreement will allow people to stay entertained while they’re on the go.”
