Nokia, IBM release new "pretty" 802.11b AP for Public WLANs

Designed specifically to be asthetically pleasing, the new NokiaA036 Access Point has been released. More interesting is that Nokia claims the AP can be remotely software-upgraded to the 802.1x, 802.11i/TKIP, and 802.11f IEEE standards from the network management center as standards become finalized.

They also claim that due to its new design, it will reduce rollout costs by 25% because of its integrated antennas, quick mounting mechanisms, and power-over-Ethernet (PoE) support.
