[maemo-developers] N800 Internet Tablet and Unlicensed Mobile Access

I would be interested to know if anyone is working on a client to run on 
the Nokia N800 that would enable the N800 to connect to a mobile network 
via 802.11, or so-called Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA).

As some on this list are aware, T-Mobile offers a service called 
T-Mobile hotspot at home and, in fact, Nokia, is one of two suppliers of 
dual radio handsets (the other is Samsung) that work with this service. 

I suspect that in order to get a software client to work with such a 
service whether it is that of T-Mobile or, some other service,  it would 
be necessary for the client to be able to read the contents of the 
service providers SIM card for the user wishing to authenticate to the 
mobile network.

Here, for your information, is the url to the www page at the T-Mobile 
(US) www site for the service offering:


and for the supported handsets:
