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.

myspace is already on cingular

you just have to text MYSPACE to 386 and they send you a little myspace java app. pretty cool but it costs $2.99 a month. Its a good idea to have it integrated though, my Blackjack already uses the OZ Im client so hopfully i can just update it.
Does it allow you to upload photos to MySpace from your phone? If so, thats pretty cool...

Sounds cool...

This sounds like a big step twords phones acting the same as PCs as far as browsers. It would be cool to take a picture and be able to upload it to my Photobucket, then paste that on other boards and MySpace...
Yeah but talk about overkill. I wish I was so cool and in such demand that I could justify uploading pictures to my MySpace profile from my phone.
