You can use the Nokia N900 as a Wireless Router to send a WiFi signal to your laptop... When out and about.

I was paying £20 a month for a O2 internet Dongle with a 3GB download limit. I have changed my place of work and the download speed here is shocking
so cancelled my contract.

However i now have a N900 that cost £5 a month for unlimited internet. So i found this app called Joikuspot and it turns my phone into a router meaning i can bounce the O2 internet signal from my phone to my laptop for a 4th of the price! This app seems to work great, only problem i have found is when i got a phone call it cut the internet to my laptop but as soon as i hung up it auto connected. Also massive power consumption!!!

Hope this will help out some N900 users any more info you have on the App please make comments below.

Niice.

i'll defintely be checking this out later tonight. there's been too many times when i've needed my laptop connected to the net instead of just my N900. Mainly down to not keeping enough of my important documents in the cloud.

For those of you who have a N900 i have created a thread to talk about current Apps for the phone. Including how to send MMS and files Via bluetooth... If you have a App ive not put on this thread that you love please add to it.
