Oz To Bring Social Networking To Handsets
Dec 6, 2006, 2:02 PM by (staff)
Oz Communications, the company that provides instant messaging clients for most major US carriers, will soon expand into social networking. The company is set to release a new client that will give users access to multiple social networking sites such as Friendster, Flickr and MySpace from a single application. Helio already has a mobile client for MySpace and Shozu provides a mobile interface for Flickr and other photo sharing sites, however Oz would provide the first unified client for these services as well as others. Users will be able to log in to a variety of services, catch up with their friends, and even post their own updates (including photos and videos) from the handset. Oz has not yet announced which social networking services will be included in the application or which carriers will pick up the application. Details are expected to be finalized in the first half of 2007.
