People who fly to Latvia, Lithuania or Norway from Tallinn Airport can now rent unlimited 3G internet tablet computers from the airport to use in these countries, reports Postimees Online. The rental of the computer is 3 euros per day for Latvia and Lithuania and 5 euros for Norway. “Although nowadays many people have their own mobile devices and free wireless internet connection is not rare, tourists face some difficulties. To be always connected and have unlimited access to the Internet, it is better to use a 3G connection, but then they see the astronomical figure on the bill when they return home,” said head of the project, Estonian start-up company iGOonline board member Yevgeni Yakovlev. Yakovlev said that in the near future, they intend to start renting tablet computers also to people who are going to Sweden, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, UK and Finland.
