Joiku announced the availability of Joikuspot on Friday for the Nokia N900. It’s still beta and may contain bugs, but users can try it out for free and report such findings. Joikuspot turns your N900 to a secure WiFi Hotspot which your laptop or other devices can use to connect to the internet.
There are known issues listed with the announcement of the beta:
JoikuSpot Linux Beta 0.1 has some issues with current Maemo WLAN driver side. This will cause the N900 to reboot with some laptop models. If this happens, re-start JoikuSpot and try again. Typically second session will work. A fix shall be made as soon as possible.
