Devicescape users can now purchase access to the T-Mobile HotSpot network on both English and German language Devicescape sites
London, 22nd July, 2008 — Devicescape Software and Deutsche Telekom AG, Europe’s largest telecommunications company, today announced that they have integrated their services to enable easier access for users and more types of devices onto T-Mobile HotSpot networks. To make it convenient for Devicescape members to find and use the more than 10,000 plus T- Mobile HotSpot locations across Germany and Europe, Devicescape now sells service subscriptions and vouchers directly on member’s account pages. By integrating T-Mobile HotSpot access directly into the Devicescape solution Deutsche Telekom can leverage the large base of Devicescape users to drive revenue and increase network usage.
“We have a growing member base of WiFi device owners who enjoy easy and seamless connections from all their devices across Europe” said Dave Fraser, CEO, Devicescape. “By offering a simple and convenient way to purchase T-Mobile HotSpot access from member account pages, we hope to make their WiFi experience even better and to increase the number of Devicescape members who use T-Mobile.”
“By partnering with Devicescape earlier in the year, Deutsche Telekom showed its commitment to enabling as many WiFi devices as possible to enjoy seamless and secure access to the T-Mobile HotSpot network,” said Andreas Morschhausen, Head of Product Management, Mobile Access, Deutsche Telekom. “Today we have taken a step to make access to T-Mobile HotSpot networks even easier for all Devicescape members and we look forward to future integrations that continue to improve consumer’s experience of our service.”
This announcement is the latest development in the partnership between the two companies that was made public at Mobile World Congress (Barcelona, Spain) in February 2008 which enables T-Home and T-Mobile users to enjoy automatic wireless access whenever they are within range of a T-Mobile HotSpot.

With many of Deutsche Telekom’s 8,000 plus T-Mobile HotSpots located in Germany, relevant pages on the Devicescape website are now available in both English and German for maximum ease-of-use for German-speaking consumers. Access to the German language pages is via a German flag conveniently situated on the website’s home page. Customers can purchase service subscriptions and vouchers via a simple “buy” button on the Devicescape website when they are looking to “add a hotspot” to increase their coverage.
The award-winning Devicescape solution eliminates the need for users to type in cumbersome login and password information and supports automatic login for devices with or without browsers. Devicescape also automates access at roaming partner hotspots further improving consumer experience, expanding coverage for travelers and building an important part of operator businesses. Additionally, operators that offer both cellular and WiFi access can use Devicescape to seamlessly shift users from costly and crowded cellular networks onto more cost-affective WiFi networks.
Devicescape is free for consumers and the software is available for popular devices at Devicescape - Connect all your Wi-Fi devices to any hotspot or Wi-Fi network - automatically including Nokia Eseries and Nseries, Windows Mobile Smartphones, laptops with Mac OSX, Windows XP and Vista, and the iPhone and iPod touch —with many more planned. Development partners can also work with the company to include the Devicescape service in their products.
