mBlog

mBlog allows users to easily create so-called weblogs from
any Internet or mobile terminal. Weblogs (or "blogs") are thematic
information sites edited by several authors and available for reading
to the mass of Internet users.

 

The vision driving mBlog is the ability to post an entry (a
news item) at any time from a mobile phone (MMS, SMS, email, WAP forms,
etc.) and the ability to read at any time using a number of mobile
outputs (WAP browser, speech synthesis). Additionally, mBlog seeks to add a new dimension to blogs in the form of positioning.

 

We believe that mobile enabled blogs will have a number of impacts:

 

  • The genesis of mobile blogs will support the building of
    communities and sustainment of social networks of many kinds, both at
    the professional and personal levels
  • Being ubiquitous by nature, mobile blogs will generate traffic
    within several parallel networks and, thus, benefit to the telecom
    industry. In particular, mobile blogs will drive MMS, SMS, WAP and data
    traffic. But they will also increase the sales and usage of multimedia
    phones.
  • Through the provision of an alternative application that is
    anchored in our social lives and behaviours, mobile blogs could act as
    the kick-off application for MMS and 3G services.

 

For more info visit the mBlog blog,
a blog that is setup as a showcase of the technology put in place and
that will be run live during the SITI winter conference 2003 and other
demos. Another example site was run during the Open House day.
