With iOS and Android doing WIFI tethering natively, Nokia has also been concentrating on giving users access to this useful piece of technology for free. New devices like the N9 and E6 already come pre-loaded with Joikuspot, and it looks like some older Eseries devices are also getting the love.
So if you have the E52, E72 or the E5, hit the Ovi Store and get yourself free copy of the Joikuspot premium app for free!
After the stability update a few days ago, as promised, a new version is out that among other things supports WEP security. Thats means that we shall be finally able to turn our WiFi smartphone into a wireless hotspot even in public places without any fear. This version comes with a generous 90 day trial after which it needs to be purchased.
Update: Lasse Maki CEO, Founder JoikuSoft informs us that the lite version will continue to remain free and there will be a premium variant with advanced features later on.

-Encryption support with WEP including automatic 128bit key generator
-Battery threshold shutting down the client when battery level is too low (adjustable)
