From shopping centers and retail stores to coffee shops and airports all over the country, there soon will be 25,000 locations where people can enjoy free Wi-Fi access with the new hand-held Nintendo 3DS system.
As of June 7, a new alliance with Simon Property Group, developer and manager of high-quality retail real estate, will provide Nintendo 3DS owners with complimentary wireless connections at nearly 200 Simon shopping malls throughout the U.S. Nintendo 3DS users can also access hotspots at Best Buy stores. Through an expanded agreement with AT&T, Nintendo 3DS users will have access to nearly 24,000 of AT&T?s Wi-Fi hotspots.
"With thousands of free Wi-Fi access points through our alliances, Nintendo 3DS users across the country can instantly enjoy one-of-a-kind entertainment experiences wherever and whenever they like," said Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime. "In addition to a strong lineup of games and the ability to view 3D content without special glasses, the system makes it easy for people to connect with their surroundings and each other, even when they?re away from home."
