Microsoft Zune update to add WiFi hotspot support

Posted on Friday, May 11 2007 @ 01:41 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Engadget received proof that a new firmware version for the Zune, which is still in beta, will add support to use WiFi hotspots:
Apparently you'll finally be able to put your WiFi to good use (other than being a part of "the social") by using open WiFi hotspots (no word on WiFi you have the key for) and Microsoft points for downloading tracks. (Sorry, no word about subscriptions, syncing, and the like. And yes, we know the wireless icon is missing; we were told it was accidentally omitted from the download UI in this build.)
