Video sharing, photo sharing and blog posting directly from your mobile device


Las Vegas, USA - Nokia, the world leader in mobile communications, and Six Apart, the world leader in blogging, today announced cooperation to bring Vox (www.vox.com), a free personal blogging service to the Nokia Nseries multimedia computer product range. The two companies will make it easy for people to upload video and photos, and update their blogs directly from their compatible Nokia Nseries devices to the Vox blogging service. The cooperation is an important step in making Web 2.0 mobile and enabling people to create and share their experiences with friends and family on the go. The Nokia N93i, also announced today, is the first product to include the integrated Vox service.

"Supported by megapixel cameras and high quality video capture, Nokia Nseries multimedia computers have become true life recorders. People want to share their discoveries instantly with friends and family and Vox is a perfect service to share your videos and photos," said Mikko Pilkama, director of Multimedia Experiences, Nokia. "We want to make sure that Nokia Nseries offers the best possible way for people to participate in Web 2.0 communities when they're mobile. Nokia and Six Apart are making it easy for people to connect and share their photos, videos and life experiences without being tied to a PC."

"We've always believed that mobile phones will have a huge impact on blogging, and we're pleased that Nokia shares this vision," said Six Apart co-founder and president Mena Trott. "People will be able to capture life's spontaneous moments by video or camera quickly and easily, and share them with friends and family. Together, Nokia and Six Apart are bringing the best on-the-go blogging experience to millions of Nokia Nseries users around the world."

Vox is a free personal blogging service for sharing experiences with friends and family. Vox's rich privacy filters give members granular control over who views their stories, photos, videos or audio. Members can easily set any of five levels of privacy on any piece of content they share on Vox.

Vox offers rich media integration, including the ability to insert video, photos and web content into posts by connecting with popular web services people already use such as Amazon.com, YouTube, Flickr, Photobucket, iStockphoto, and iFilm. Generous storage - two gigabytes total uploads per month and three gigabytes for Nokia Nseries users - assures members that they never have to worry about deleting an important memory.

Doing all this from a Nokia Nseries device is easy. After registering with Vox (www.vox.com/nokia) and setting up account information in the device, Vox members are able to upload videos and full size photos to Vox directly from the camera or Image Gallery application*. The first device shipping with Vox settings will be the Nokia N93i, and existing users of Nokia Nseries multimedia computers can download the settings file from www.vox.com/nokia for the following models: Nokia N70 Music Edition, N72, N73, N73 Music Edition, N80 Internet Edition, N93, N93i, and N95.

In 2006, Nokia sold around 140 million camera phones, making it the world's largest manufacturer of digital cameras. The most important camera that you can have is the one that is with you when you need to capture a moment you want to preserve. Having a connected camera in your pocket provides a unique ability to instantly capture and share your experiences without having to transfer pictures to a computer.
