Posted by at 9:49 pm on October 30, 2009

Boingo Wireless has announced the availability of its authentication software and Boingo Mobile service for the BlackBerry platform. Available immediately from the Boingo Download Center, Boingo Mobile provides BlackBerry smartphone owners with an alternative to cellular data through one-click, high-speed access to Boingo’s Wi-Fi network of over 100,000 hotspots.

The Boingo Mobile application will initially be available for the BlackBerry Curve 8900, BlackBerry Curve 8320 and BlackBerry Bold smartphones. Boingo will announce support for additional BlackBerry smartphone models as they become available.

The free Boingo Mobile application improves the Wi-Fi user experience for BlackBerry smartphone owners by providing a convenient, automated way to connect. It automatically notifies users when they are in a Boingo hotspot, and connects to the Boingo network with a single click.

“Boingo Mobile is about ease of use and a low-cost, high-speed alternative to cellular data,” said Jonathan Mendelson, general manager of mobile and product management. “BlackBerry users can seamlessly switch to a Boingo Wi-Fi connection when they’re online using data-intensive applications.”

With the addition of BlackBerry platform support, Boingo continues to expand its support for smartphones, including those based on the Android, iPhone, Symbian Series 60 and Windows Mobile platforms.

Boingo Mobile’s Blackberry software is based on public beta testing by Boingo Labs and incorporates extensive user feedback. Boingo will continue to foster innovation and update its application for BlackBerry smartphones to provide new features providing users even more benefits from the Boingo network and its locations.
