Brief: Nokia Picked For Free Multimedia Wi-Fi In NYC Parks

The service will be available in 10 parks, including Central Park, later this summer.
Nokia has been chosen to provide mobile services for free Wi-Fi networks in 10 major New York City parks including Central Park.

Nokia said Thursday it will introduce mobile multimedia services with local media participants later this summer.

"New Yorkers can enjoy some of their favorite pastimes while in the parks " such as reading the paper, listening to music or accessing the Internet " in an entirely new way," said Floris van de Klashorst, Nokia director of multimedia, in a statement.

Nokia handsets N80 and N91 as well as the Nokia 770 Internet Tablet will operate with the service, Nokia said, noting that handsets and laptops from other providers will also be capable of accessing the service.
