As a way to help consumers get the most out of their 3DS when they're traveling over the holidays, Nintendo is giving users a pretty neat goodie.
The company has struck a deal with Boingo, one of the most well-known pay-per-Wi-Fihotspot providers in the country, to offer free online access exclusively to 3DS owners at select airports.
New York City (JFK), Chicago (ORD), and Houston (IAH) are among the pilot locations for the new program. In total, 42 airports are blessed with the free Wi-Fi test.
This means users will be able to buy downloadable games, stream online videos, and access the "Nintendo Zone" which is constantly updated with new offers and information.
This isn't the first time Nintendo has embraced airports as a target location for its gamers. It previously installed Nintendo DSdownload stations at select airports, allowing those with a DS to download game demos and other content through a local wireless connection.
"With the holiday season approaching, more leisure travelers and families with children will fill our airports and have access to our hotspots. Our state-of-the-art networks will provide Nintendo 3DS users with seamless connectivity and fast, reliable service to help them make the most of their travel downtime," said Boingo SVP Colby Goff.
Nintendo's Zach Fountain boasted, "Nintendo 3DS is our most connected device ever, and this agreement will allow people to stay entertained while they’re on the go."

About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
