How to turn your Nokia N8 into a Wi-Fi hotspot

If you’re in need of internet whilst on the go and your Nokia N8 is the only thing with internet access, you can use the N8 as a Wi-Fi hotspot using a very clever little app called Joikuspot. You can connect your laptop or other Wi-Fi enabled devices to the internet using your phone as a 3G modem.

With Joikuspot on your Nokia N8 you can say bye-bye to those awkward USB dongles, slow MiFi’s or Bluetooth connections that you may have or already have tried in the past. You can even enjoy having Wi-Fi access without having other people trying to leech your internet either, as the app has a built-in security feature to stop those pests from using your precious bandwidth.

Having your Nokia N8 mobile phone as an internet sharing device can be very useful for work, school, college or even just fun. No more excuses that you didn’t do your research for college or work because you had no internet access, take the internet with you everywhere you go.
