Nokia today launched a new social networking application called Sensor. Sensor allows users to create personal pages for themselves, and then share that profile as well as send messages and files to other sensor users in the area over a Bluetooth connection. Sensor requires Java and Bluetooth and is only available to owners of Series 60 version 2 and 3 handsets, from the 6600 to new releases such as the 6682. Similar applications for these same Series 60 handsets have been under development and study by researchers around the globe for the past year.
