Comments on: World's First IR Internet access Kiosk for PDAs

Palm ran an advertisement in Singapore's Straits Times yesterday that there will be IR-kiosks installed in Singapore's Changi Airport Transit Lounge to enable wireless Internet access. Changi Airport has a press release on that: "Passengers in the Departure / Transit lounge of Singapore Changi Airport can now access the Internet using their Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs). This service, which is the first of its kind in the world, is made possible with the 8 Infrared (IR) Internet Access Kiosks introduced jointly by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), Sunderland Technologies Pte Ltd, Palm Inc. and StarHub Internet.

This is definitely an exciting development. As long as security concerns can be addressed, I'm all for it and hope the U.S. will be seeing it soon.

don't forget us!

I think this is a great idea. I think Heathrow could benefit from something like this.

Maybe I won't need ....

That wireless modem afterall. Though I don't travel for business, being a chauffeur in the NYC area, having these kiosks @ LGA, JFK, & EWR would be great!

Does anyone know what these kiosks look like? I visited the Sunderland site to no avail. I am extremely interested in the technology but cannot find any information save a product name "pointIR". Anyone know anything about it?
